Chili sin Carne: The preparation
Working time: 30 minutes

Cut the onion into small pieces. Wash the red and yellow peppers, remove the seeds and finely chop. Cut red chilli and jalapeno just as small and, if desired, crush with a little rosemary and salt in a small bowl. Finely chop garlic cloves. In a large pot, heat the coconut oil to medium heat and fry the onion in a glass. Add the sweet paprika and the cumin and sauté briefly. Then chilli, garlic and jalapeno (careful: only if you really really like it!) And sauté for 20 seconds. Add the red and yellow peppers and stir fry until the spices develop their delicious scent.
Add black and kidney beans as well as corn one by one to the remaining ingredients in the pot and stir well. Add peeled tomatoes and pieces of tomato puree and season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes, until the peppers soften. If you like the corn and the beans crispier, you can add them to the gravy ten minutes later.
