Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup onion -- chopped
1 cup celery -- chopped
1 cup green bell pepper -- chopped
2 cloves garlic -- chopped
1 jalapeno or fresno pepper -- chopped with seeds
1 (14 oz) can low-sodium stewed tomatoes -- with juice
1 (14 oz) jar tomato salsa -- or your favorite
1 pkg chili seasoning -- such as McCormick
2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans -- or your favorite

Cover the bottom of a large saucepan with 3-4 tbsp of water. Add the onion, celery, green peppers, and garlic. Saute until wilted 3-4 minutes. Strain out the liquid and return to pan. Add jalapeno or fresno peppers. Saute for another 2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, juice and all, the salsa, chili seasoning, and beans. Simmer for about 1 hour, just as you would any chili.

Serve with a dollop of fat-free sour cream (or if you feel like indulging, a dollop of full-fat sour cream or roasted garlic sour cream - Friendship makes one).
