Happy Sunday!

I know it’s spring, but it has yet to feel like it. I’m told that while I was away in Pennsylvania, it was super warm in the SF Bay Area. Now, it’s back to cooler weather and rain. And while I was on vacation in Pennsylvania all of last week, it was mostly in the 30’s! I even saw snow fall a few times. But now that I’m back at home, Philadelphia is in the 50’s and 60’s! Seriously? Lol

All of last week, I was wishing for warm comforting foods while I huddled in front of the heater. Okay, sort of. I had too much to explore and too much to eat in a week to be sitting at home wrapped in a blanket. But I did wish I had something warm and comforting like this bowl of chili to chase away the cold.

I will warn you that I like my chili super spicy. So I put in a whole can of chipotle peppers when I’m making chili for myself, but for the recipe, I only used half. If you don’t think you can handle spicy, you can add just a couple of chipotle peppers and add more to taste. Totally up to you.

In a medium sized pot, add olive oil over low to medium heat and allow the olive oil to warm for about a minute. Next, add minced garlic, and cook until aromatic and golden. Add sliced onions, and cook until the onions have softened.

Add a medley of mushroom, corn, and black beans. I used a combination of white mushrooms, king oyster mushrooms, and brown beech mushrooms. But you can use whatever mushrooms you like. Cook until the mushrooms have softened.

Pour in the vegetable broth. Add chipotle peppers, adobo sauce from the can of chipotle peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, oregano, all spice, cumin, thyme, and paprika. Stir until all the ingredients are combined.
