1 Vidalia Onion (small-medium) chopped

3 garlic cloves minced

2 (15 oz) cans Black Beans

1 (15oz) can Red Kidney Beans

2 tablespoons Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce

1 small jalapeno Pepper and/or Habanero Pepper

0.33 cup Crushed Pineapple in Juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoons paprika

1 tablespoons garlic powder

1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes

5 tablespoons chili powder

1.5 tablespoons onion powder

2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar

0.5 avocado cut in slices


In a large stock-pot, add your olive oil and garlic and saut for approximately one minute on medium heat; do not burn the garlic. Next add your onions, red, yellow and green peppers. You want to sweat these until soft. After you vegetables are softened, add your spices to them and the oil. Next add your tomato sauce, fire roasted tomatoes, chili sauce, and chipotle peppers in adobo. Stir and let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Next add your black beans, corn and pineapple. Stir and let sit on a medium heat for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remember for added heat, you can add your jalapeno or habanero either diced or whole to the chili. Top it off with the rice wine vinegar. Finally, stir and let simmer on a low heat. Garnish with avocado slice, cream, cilantro and scallions and eat with sweet potato chips!
