Mum's Amazing Chili

This is the recipe my Mum has been using since before I was born, and it's probably my favorite food.

Ingredients:
2 large onions, sliced
2 large bell peppers, sliced (1 red and 1 green)
1 can of whole tomatoes, broken in pieces, along with the juice
5-10 jalapenos, sliced (depending on taste)
1-2 cans of kidney beans (depending on how much you like)
1 can garbanzo beans
4 TBS chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 TBS vegetable oil

OPTIONALS:
1 package (12-16 oz) of soy ground meat (personally, I prefer it without)
Cayenne
Other hot peppers

1. In a very large, deep frying pan OR 4-quart saucepan, heat oil.
2. Saute onions and peppers (and soy meat if using) for 10 mins in oil.
3. Add other ingredients and simmer for 45 mins.
This should make around 8 servings.

That's it! This picture was taken just after the ingredients were added. It's in a small pan because tonight my mum is making a batch with meat in it.
