  1. On medium heat, in a heavy stock pot (I swear by cast iron enameled dutch ovens). Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil till clear. Add veggie meat (remember this is optional but delicious) and brown it. Add thyme, cumin powder, bay leaf, and chili powder, and coat all well. Add more oil if needed.
  2. Add beans, tomatoes, green chilis and chipotle, River Salt, 2 cups water, Queen Nanny’s Jerk Seasoning. Stir well.
  3. Simmer on low to medium heat for 30 min. Keep the pot lid ajar. Stir every 10 mins. Remove the bay leaf before serving and storing leftovers.
  4. QUICK FIXES: If chili is thicker than desired, add an extra 8 oz of diced tomato with its water (from can or fresh). Add a dash more chili powder and garlic powder to balance the extra tomato sauce. If chili becomes too spicy, add 8 oz diced tomato (with its water) plus 1-2 tablespoons of agave to taste.
  5. Serve with Cheese (I love Follow Your Heart vegan cheese shreds) and/or a dollop of Greek Yogurt atop (the yogurt adds protein, a tart zing, and cools the spice on the tongue.
