- 2 cups (500 mL) button mushrooms cut into 1/4 quarters
- 2 cups (500 mL) carrot, diced
- 1 cup (250 mL) celery, diced

- 2 tbsp (30 mL) red wine vinegar
- 1 can (540 mL) canned tomatoes
- 1 tsp (5 mL) of canned chipotles (Mexican smoked jalapenos)
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) chilli powder
- 2 pinches salt

Place onions and garlic in a large pan or pot with 100 mL of water, a handful of salt, and ¼ cup (50 mL) of oil, then put a lid on it and bring to a boil. The water helps draw out natural sugars in the onion giving you a sweeter product. Cook on medium heat and stir every 5 minutes until the onions are soft and slightly brown.
Add in cumin and coriander and stir for 5 minutes on higher heat; this is your chilli base. Remove from pot.
Wipe down your pot to clean it and, on the highest heat you possibly can, caramelize mushrooms in the remaining ¼ cup (50 ml) of oil for about 5 minutes, making sure you do not put more than one layer of mushrooms at a time. When the mushrooms are well caramelized, turn down heat and place chilli base of onions back in.
Add carrots and celery, stir for 5 more minutes. Add the sugar and shortly after, add in vinegar. Reduce till no liquid is left.
Add in tomatoes and chipotles, bring to a simmer for 30 minutes; add in all the chilli powder and season with salt to taste.
place in a 6oz oven safe bowl and crack 2 eggs in the chilli, then place in the oven at 350 °F (180 °C) for 10 minutes until the egg is set but the yolk is still runny.
Dice an avocado and place on top with a dollop of sour cream, cilantro, lime wedge, and crusty bread.
