You will never miss the meat here. I like using a beer when making chili. It always turns out the best, I find friends and family are pleasantly left wondering what the special taste is. You can add whatever you have to use in this, NO RULES! Serve with tortilla chips and any other toppings you like.
2 tsp canola oil
2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper (about 1)
