There are so many vegetarian chili recipes that make absolutely delicious healthy chili. I love to make my vegetarian chili with loads of beans and I add veggie crumbs for extra protein. My recipe is low in salt making it even extra healthy. If you use flavorful spices salt is not needed.

1 each red and green bell pepper, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion
