3 pepper chili

This chili is hot, spicy and full of complex layers of flavour. Now, without all the food snobbyness I’ll quite simply state that this recipe makes a nice belly warming bowl of chow. This isn’t a Texan chili, ie it contains beans, so please none of that debate! It’s also vegetarian, a sin to many, with that in mind, all I can do is hope you guys will enjoy this chili as much as I did!

Prep. time 20 min.
Cook 15 min. or indeterminably (it's chili, it's made to sit on the stove forever)
Serves 3-4

1 diced yellow onion
4 chopped green onions
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 tbsp. of chipotle puree

½ tsp. paprika
1 bay leaf
1 sprig of oregano
1c. tomato puree
1 tomato, diced
½ tsp. sugar
