Lean and Mean Chili with Beans

This recipe is packed with nutrients, and sure to keep you satiated. For the tomato juice I use Spicy Organic Very Veggies juice. And I like to add more than 1 cup because I like a more of a broth base in my chili. I like to make it at the beginning of the week and have leftovers at lunch time!

INGREDIENTS:

1 LB. GROUND BEEF (OPTIONAL for vegetarian and plant-based)
1 CAN KIDNEY BEANS, RINSED
1 CAN BLACK BEANS, RINSED
1 CAN DICED TOMATOES
1/2 ONION, DICED
1 RED PEPPER, DICED
3 CLOVES GARLIC, MINCED
1 CUP VEGETABLE BROTH
1 CUP TOMATO JUICE
1 TBSP OLIVE OIL
2 TBSP CHILI POWDER
1/2 TSP CUMIN
