I've been keeping a chili log with some different recipes. Here are two of mine. The second one is vegetarian but both include a lot of beans. Oh, and "1 can" is the regular sized cans you get at the super market... you know, a little bigger than a Cambel's soup can.

Beananza Chili
1 Green bell pepper
1 Red bell pepper
1 Large yellow onion
2 Jalapeño peppers
3 Cloves of garlic
1 Can chili beans
1 Can dark red kidney beans
1 Can great northern beans
1 Can black beans
1 Can stewed and chopped tomatoes
1 Small can tomato paste
1 Pound lean hamburger
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 Teaspoon pepper
1 Teaspoon cumin
1/2 Teaspoon coriander

Beananza Fiesta Chili - A little hot with three jalapeños.
1 Green bell pepper
1 Red bell pepper
1 Yellow bell pepper
1 Orange bell pepper
1 Large red onion
1 Large yellow onion
3 Jalapeño peppers
3 Cloves of garlic
1 Can chili beans
1 Can dark red kidney beans
1 Can great northern beans
1 Can black beans
1 Can pinto beans
1 Can stewed and chopped tomatoes
1 Small can tomato paste
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 Teaspoon pepper
1 Teaspoon cumin

I like the contents of the "Fiesta" looks festive :D Lots of color variation in there.
The "Chili Cookoff" is coming up at the end of the month at church. I'll make a batch using your ingredients and see how it fares in the contest. :o

:o If you want to add a pound of lean hamburger to it you can. Otherwise, you can keep it veggie if you don't want to exclude anyone. I'm a big fan of beans and since this recipe was vegetarian I decided to also go nuts on the veggies. I would use only one or two jalapeño peppers though... three seemed a little hot for me.

As for the prep, I chop the veggies into nickel or quarter sized chunks. The garlic is crushed in a garlic press. All the cans are drained of liquid.

I can get some chunks of gluten and grind it up to replace the ground beef. It's add the texture of beef and also give the protien normally founf in a beef product. This way I can keep it vegetarian. I can use the canned "chilies" they seem to be on the mild size for one can worth.
