Here I combine the ideas behind a Mushroom and Swiss, French Onion Soup and Stuffed Mushrooms.  Then I wrap them up into one glorious recipe that just can’t be denied.  The Broth soaks into the toasted garlic bread and that Swiss cheese just melts around every ingredient.  So every bite you take it simply amazing!

If you’re interested in the two recipes that inspired this one check them out in the links below.  Both recipes truly are the best of the best and definitely worth a look.

Vegetable Chili with 4 Beans

Vegetable Chili

100% Vegetarian Vegetable Chili

This Vegetable Chili, for me, is really exciting.  Because this time of year I get to start, slowly but surely, harvesting what I’ve been growing in my garden all summer long.  In this video I was able to use my Zucchini and Yellow Squash.  Everything else unfortunately isn’t ready to be picked yet but I was able to pick up those ingredients at the store.

4 Bean Vegetable Chili

I’m using 4 different kinds of beans in this Vegetable Chili recipe; Pinto, Black, Red and Garbanzo Beans but you can use whatever you like.  The basic idea behind this recipe starts with the Cajun Holy Trinity; Onions, Celery, Bell Peppers and chopped Garlic.  Then I like to work my way up the pot with the larger vegetables, Tomato Sauce and then the seasonings before I add the beans.  But once all 4 cans of those are in, I add the broth and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid.  In no time you will have the absolute best Vegetarian Chili you have ever had.  In fact the only thing that would make this Vegetable Chili recipe better is Chicken!

Vegetable Chili Ingredients:

1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Black Beans
1 can Red Beans
1 can Garbanzo Beans
1 can Tomato Sauce
3 Cups Vegetable Broth

1 Onion, chopped
1 Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Celery Stick, chopped
1 Garlic Clove, chopped
2 Roma Tomatoes, Chopped
1 Zucchini, chopped
1 Yellow Squash, chopped
1 Corn on the cob, sliced
1 Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce, minced
1/3 cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped
3 tbsp Olive Oil, for sauteing

1 tsp Coriander
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Cumin
1 tbsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Cocoa
Salt and Pepper to taste

To make this 4 Bean Vegetable Chili, just follow the instructions in the video tutorial.

Menudo – Authentic Beef Tripe and Hominy Soup

Menudo

OMG I love me some Menudo.  Honestly I was the only one in my household that liked it until I came up with this recipe.  It’s fresh and it knocks off 75% of the normal cooking time.  I mean, I’ve heard of some recipes taking up to 6 hours to cook.  That’s just crazy.  Especially when you realize how good it can taste using my recipe.  Now there is a catch, but it isn’t anything other than learning one of my other recipes: my Enchilada Sauce.  But that’s not a bad thing.  My Enchilada Sauce Recipe is quite possibly the best sauce to hit the Internet since Napster.  Okay, that might be overstating it a bit.  But I’m telling you, if you taste my Enchilada Sauce, side by side with any other recipe, you will never go back.  So learn this Enchilada Sauce recipe and dive right into this Menudo and I swear to you that it will be the best Mexican Soup you’ve ever had!

FYI: I am using Bleached Beef Tripe which is already cleaned.  If you don’t know how to clean beef tripe or prepare it for eating, here’s a great “how to” on the Wiki website, CLICK HERE!
