Veggie Chili

1 onion
1 clove garlic
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 can chili beans
1 can black or pinto beans (or any variety you prefer)
1 cup water
2 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs cumin
2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add diced peppers for an additional 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and seasonings. Adjust seasoning for your taste, adding more if needed. Bring to a light boil and simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve with your choice of cheese, sour cream, chives, and/or saltine crackers.
