Millet Chili


1 tbs olive oil
1 large white onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 (15 oz) can of corn kernels
1 (15 oz) can dark kidney beans
1 (15 oz) can light kidney beans
2 (15 oz) cans of vegetable broth
1 cup millet
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes

Preparation Instructions

Warm olive oil in large saucepan. Sauté onions, peppers, garlic, salt, and pepper for 4-5 minutes until the onions become translucent. Add in corn, beans, broth, spices, and bring to a low boil. Add millet and stir. Cover, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove lid, add diced tomatoes and tomato paste, and stir. Chili is ready to serve, but additional simmering will improve flavor. Serve with shredded cheddar or sour cream on top.

Optional Garnish

Add shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream as garnish.

Just wanted to let you know I made your recipe for Millet Chili, and we thought it was delicious! I made one substitution - instead of corn I used some organic mushrooms and added an extra can of diced organic tomatoes.
Thank you for sharing!
