Vegetarian Chili

As fall weather creeps in I will turn to some quick skillet recipes like this easy Vegetarian Chili.

I put olive oil in a large skillet on the stove and turned the heat to medium.

Once the oil was heated I added the bag of sliced carrots, chopped green pepper, mushrooms and celery to the pan.

After stirring them I opened a can of Bean Medley and a can of corn.  I drained and rinsed the can of beans.

I dumped both of these into the skillet and continued cooking on medium for 5 minutes.

I added 3 jars of salsa and reduced the heat to simmer.  

I use a mix of mild and medium.  Choose the heat level that works best for you and it can be changed up each time you make it depending on who will be enjoying it with you!

Adding the salsa.

After I had stirred everything together well I removed 3 cups of the chili and placed it in a large glass measuring cup. 

Putting 3 cups of chili in a measuring cup.

Then I used an immersion blender before returning these 3 cups back to the skillet.  I did this step to create a thicker chili.

Using the immersion blender.

I let the chili simmer for another 20 minutes, stirring it occasionally,  before serving with toast and Tortilla Scoops.
