For the Best Black Bean Chili Ever! Thanks “L”

1 In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onions and pepper and cook stirring as needed until softened (about 5 minutes). 2 Add the carrots, chili powder, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, and nutmeg/cloves. Cook stirring about 1 minute. 3 Stir in the tomatoes, black beans, tomato paste, pepper, and salt. Cook covered, stirring as needed until thickened for about 1 hour.

Note: If you want a little more kick in your Black Bean Chili, add a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles or use a half can of green chiles. Top with a dollop of sour cream and sliced avocadoes and diced red onions or scallions.
