Clean Eating - Quinoa and White Bean Chili

  • Currently 4/5
1/2 c uncooked quinoa
1 lg red bell pepper, chopped
1 lg green bell pepper, chopped
1 tsp ground chipotle pepper
2 15oz cans white beans, drained and rinsed
4 lg fresh tomatoes, chopped with juices
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
6oz fresh spinach, chopped
1. In a 4qt pot, combine quinoa and 4c water and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover tightly and simmer for 15 minutes.
2. Add bell peppers, chipotle, beans, tomatoes, cumin, and oregano to pot with quinoa. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for about 10 minutes. While chili is appealingly thick and quinoa is throwing off its tiny white haloes, stir in spinach and cook for 1 more minute, until just wilted. Serve hot.
