  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and cook until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add the diced Mezzetta® Roasted Red Bell Peppers and garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the garlic is fragrant.  
  2. Add the ground plant-based meat alternative and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon into smaller chunks until browned, about 7 minutes. 
  3. Add the tomato paste, spices and salt and pepper and cook, stirring often until fragrant, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Add the beans and the jar of Mezzetta® Spicy Italian Plum Tomato Marinara and stir everything to combine. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low to simmer. Simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with your favorite chili toppings.
