You will be happy that you do not have to give up your your love for chili to follow a healthy life style.

1. Add the olive oil to a large soup pot. Add the onion, garlic and bell pepper to the pot, and saute for about 4 or 5 minutes.

2. Add the tomatoes, chili powder, and vegetable broth to the pot. Stir the mixture together.

3. With the heat set to medium-low, add the black beans and kidney beans to the mixture.

4. Now, cook the chili for a minimum of 20 minutes, and be sure to stir from time to time. If you are not in a rush, you can reduce the heat and let the chili simmer for a while. Longer cooking time will enhance the chili flavor.
