1. Heat a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat.
2. Add oil, onions, garlic and chickpeas. Stirring occasionally, let your chickpeas get nice and crispy!
3. After 5-8 minutes, turn the heat down to medium and add your tomatoes, tomato paste, water and seasonings. Stir and let simmer for 3 minutes
4. Add your veggies!
5. Simmer on low for 30 minutes with the lid on.
Pro-tip! If you like your chili on the thicker side, mix 1 tsp of organic masa (corn flour) with 1 tbsp of warm water. Once mixed, add to your chili and stir until fully mixed. Repeat until you get your desired consistency.
