Vegetarian Chili

Vegetarian Chili is inexpensive, nutritious, filling, and a complete protein with brown rice added.
Serve with Cornbread, or chips and shredded cheese.

4 C dry pinto beans, soaked overnight and rinsed well
12 C water
2 C brown rice rinsed well
2 diced yellow onions
4 cans tomato sauce
2 qt. diced tomatoes with juice
2 Tbsp. chili powder
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. pepper
3 bay leaves
2 green peppers
1-2 anaheim peppers

In a very large stock pot, bring water and beans to a boil and simmer for 2 hrs. (or longer if old beans) until beans are almost tender. Add all remaining ingredients, simmer for 1 hr. and serve.( I simmered mine about 3 hrs. more) This makes a lot and freezes well for another meal or you can use the next night over baked potatoes.
