Spicy Vegetarian Chili

A bowl of vegetarian chili

My friend Jim came up with a recipe for vegetarian chili that was different from mine this year. It uses different beans, different vegetables and tastes great.

Note: This recipe makes a rather hot chili, so if you like you like your chili milder, reduce the amount of chili powder and black pepper.
