    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1/4" dice.

  2. 2

    Cook the Onion and Red Bell Pepper

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Stir occasionally until vegetables are softened, 3-5 minutes.

    Stir in half the tomatoes (reserve remaining for garnish), chili powder, and cumin.

    Finish the Chili
