Thanks for finding me! This is a GREAT Vegetarian/Vegan meal that makes chili for four (you'll need to add 2 more Portabellas if you want to SERVE for 4, however), with some leftovers! Like all of my recipes, this meal is designed for TWO people, spending LESS than $10, and cooked in about TWENTY minutes. It's the 2 for 10 method!
  Green pepper 1 , chopped
  Onion 1 Small
  Diced tomatoes 1 Can (10 oz) (With Jalapeno)
  Canned kidney beans 1 Can (10 oz)
  Canned black beans 1 Can (10 oz)
  Canned corn 7 1⁄2 Ounce (1 Small Can)
  Tomato paste 7 1⁄2 Ounce (1 Small Can)
  Portabella mushroom caps 2
  Tortilla chips 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Powdered garlic To Taste

1) In a pot, saute the green pepper and onion in olive oil over a medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring often.
2) Stir in the tomatoes, black beans, dark kidney beans and tomato paste.
3) Season with chili powder, salt, powdered garlic and pepper to taste.
4) Stir occasionally and cook the mixture for about 18 minutes.
5) Brush the Portabella mushroom caps with a little olive oil and season them evenly with salt and pepper on both sides.
6) In a pan, drizzle in some olive oil, place the caps top side down and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes.
7) When the mushrooms are softened, flip them and cook them for another 3 to 5 minutes on the other side.
8) With 5 minutes left on the vegetable mixture, stir in the corn, mix thoroughly.

9) Spoon the chili into the mushroom caps and serve hot with tortilla chips.

Melissa Thanks for the great cooking show - I am in the process of doing a show like yours and found your writing about starting the show a great help - I think that it will take me about six months to get where you are for quality production - My friends all think that it will just be a video of my cooking, as you pointed out it is not that easy. Thank you Steve in Sacramento
