Green Chilies and Lentil Chili

1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1 cup dry lentils
1 can cannelloni beans-(white kidney beans) you could substitute regular red kidney if needed
1 can black beans
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 little can green chilies
3 cups water

Chili seasoning:
1 tablespoon Cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt to your liking -I used 1 tablespoon( but salt is my vice)

Chop onion and garlic. Remember the smaller you cut the faster it cooks. Drain and rinse your beans, including the dry lentils. Saute onion and garlic until onion is tender. I do not use oil to saute but I add a little water to keep the onions from sticking to pot. After onion is tender add the remainder of ingredients including the seasoning and let cook over medium heat until the lentils are tender about 30-45 minutes. That is it. So easy and so good.

**I serve it with quinoa and diced avocado but it really doesn’t need either. It does enhance the yumminess!
