This is a recipe that I've made a few times and the family loves it more than the meat-based chili we used to eat.
6 to 10 cups of beans with juice (I used leftover pinto and mix them with red kidney or black beans)
1 small can tomato paste
1/4 onion, copped small
1/4 cup beer or red wine
1/4 cup chili powder
1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves minced garlic
1 TB ground cumin
1 TB dried oregano
1 TB dried basil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 TB sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all of the ingredients into medium sized pot under high heat and bring to boil.
Reduce heat to simmer until desired consistency or until onions are to desired tenderness - about 15 minutes.
Serve over Fritos or crackers or in a tortilla. Top with onion and soy cheese. Enjoy!
