Vegetarian Chili

I usually just modify my normal chili recipe, but decided to have a google this time and see what extras I could come up with. Look what I found!

But what I suggest for a good veggie chili is:
cumin, cayenne, chili powder, and cinnamon, to taste
3 cans of beans (for example, 1 pinto or black, 1 white, and 1 spicy kidney)
1 can corn
1-2 cans diced tomatoes
1 eggplant, chopped
1 capsicum/bell pepper, chopped (red, orange or yellow)
1 sweet potato, diced and slightly cooked
1 bottle of beer (1/2 for the chili and 1/2 for the cook! Use any beer you prefer.)
1 tsp or so of olive oil

Mix all ingredients together and cook until veggies are tender, either on the stove or in a crock pot.

*Sour cream and cheese to top of course!

**Other optional ingredients to heat up or spice up Chili are Worcester Sauce, Hot Sauce, BBQ Sauce. Other spices I've seen used in recipes but not tried yet are Paprika and Mustard.

Corn in chilli is good, so's the eggplant cus it really absorves the flavours. I'dve added some roo mince though :)

I got a great looking kangaroo chili recipe that I'm dying to try out when we get back. It even has vegemite in it.
