Calico Chili

2 cups black beans, cooked, rinsed and drained
2 cups garbanzo beans, cooked, rinsed and drained
2 cups hominy, cooked, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (I like stewed tomatoes)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon paprika
1 to 2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 bay leaf, optional (don’t eat it!)

In a large pot, mix beans and veggies.
Mix seasoning in a bowl and add to chili until it suits your taste.
Heat until warm and bubbly and serve with Hill Country Fare’s Whole Grain Crackers and tall glasses of cold water.

This recipe was printed on my favorite HEB crackers box (kinda like these).
I adjusted it to suit myself tho; instead of canned beans I prefer to cook my own!
This looks like a great meal for meatless Monday… or simply fry up some ground beef or turkey, drain and add.
