Chile Sin (without) Carne

If you love Chilis but would rather skip the meat, you have to try this...And all of you who are telling me you don't have time to cook or that eating healthy is too expensive, well I have an excellent news for you, you won't have to worry your pretty little head about "time" or "cost" with this dish. How much is a can of bean? Even organic it's cheap, so no more excuses...I said no to the hand!!

2 medium size tomatoes
1/2 large portabella cap
1 bunch fresh cilantro
1 small jalapeno
2 cloves of garlic
1- 15 oz can black beans
1/2 cup olive oil
2-3 tsp cumin powder (to taste)
Celtic salt

Place tomatoes in your food processor and pulse 2-3 times, until the tomatoes are chopped in small pieces but not pureed, chunks are good! Transfer to large mixing bowl. Pulse portabella cap in food processor 2-3 times until it resemble a minced meat type texture (that is your ground meat). Transfer portabella to mixing bowl with tomatoes. Place jalapeno, cilantro, garlic and olive oil in food processor until minced (not pureed - a bit smaller than chopped). Transfer to mixing bowl with other ingredients. Place 1/4 of the black beans into food processor and this time, do puree it (this will give a nice thick consistency to your chili). Add black bean puree to mixing bowl with the remaining of the whole black beans. Season with cumin and salt. Mix well and serve with corn chips!
