Butter Bean Chili

I'm a magician in the kitchen at work. As aforementioned, there's very little I can eat at Chez Omni, but because I know my shit and I love the show Chopped, I can easily make something out of a mystery basket of ingredients. Here's a precious little number I made on the fly, it's called Butterbean Chili. When you  make it, make sure you have the B-52's playing Butter Beans in the background.

You'll need
  • 1 can of butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 12 oz can of V-8 juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 T of balsamic vinegar dressing
  • 1 t Ms. Dash table blend
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 2 t Ms. Dash chipotle blend
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 1/2 t black pepper
  • dash of hot sauce
  • 1/2 t chili powder

Bring everything together to a rollin' boil, and simmer for about a half an hour. I served mine over mashed potatoes and with a side salad. I think this would be rad with the traditional corn bread and some vegan sour cream, or even over a bed of tortilla chips.
