Another Vegetarian Chili

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

My own creation that has been in the making for years. A full and hearty dish the blows the chill of fall or winter away. Pair this with white or brown rice for a nutrtionally balanced meal. Where's the beef? Who knows and you won't care.

Great recipe, thank you for posting. I had to take pep-to bismol the second time I had it. I also added green pepper, red hot, and ate it with Fritos on top for some crunch. Colors were great together, and I have never had anything like this before.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. On medium heat, add oil, onions, green pepper, garlic and jalapeno pepper to a large pot.
  2. Cook until onions and peppers are soft, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes to the pot.
  4. I like to break mine up by hand.
  5. If that's too messy for you, use the back of a cooking spoon.
  6. Add in the beans, corn, carrots and seasonings.
  7. Bring pot to a low simmer and cook about 60-90 minutes.
  8. The longer the better.
  9. Do not cover the pot as it stops evaporation and thickening of the chili.
  10. Adjust seasoning by adding more chili to taste.
  11. If you like it mui caliente, sprinkle a little cayenne or chop up a chipotle pepper.
  12. Add in zucchini cubes and simmer an additional 30 minutes.
  13. Serve over rice.
