¾cupbulgur(the texture, once cooked, resembles ground beef)
Hot peppers and cilantro for garnish
In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat and cook the onions until lightly browned (~5-7 minutes). Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper and continue to cook for one more minute.
Add all remaining ingredients to the pot, except bulgur. Add the reserved cooking liquid and add enough to cover vegetables. Bring everything to a boil. Turn down the heat to a simmer and continue to cook for 45 minutes. Add bulgur during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
Serve hot garnished with cilantro and hot peppers.
*Note: If you do not have the separate spices on hand, this spice mix works well as a substitute for all the spices.
