Vegetarian Chili with Black Beans
3 (15 ounce) cans black beans
¼ cup olive oil
2 cups chopped onions
2 medium red bell peppers
6 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 (16 ounce) can tomato sauce
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Drain black beans, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, bell peppers, and garlic; saute until onions are soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, and cayenne pepper; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
Add reserved black beans, 1/2 cup bean liquid, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend and chili thickens, about 15 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle chili into bowls to serve.
