Made this twice already! We put everything, except the bell peppers, in our crock pot and set it on low for 6 - 8 hours. After half way, or when there's 2 hrs left to cook, we add the bell peppers. We also only made half of what this recipe called for. Overall, we love it! Don't miss meat at all :-)
This was really, really good. I kinda-sorta halved the recipe since it was just the 2 of us, but it wasn't a clean halving so I used full cans of beans and tomatoes and a whole package of soyrizo. A really flavorful and filling vegan chili. The spices in the soyrizo are really excellent in chili. I had time to cook mine so I simmered it on low for a few hours. Will definitely make again!
I'm with the other reviewers! This chili is awesome! We're new vegetarians, although it wasn't hard to switch because we really didn't eat a lot of meat, but chili was something I really enjoyed making and eating. This was excellant and I will def make it again. I can't serve it to my kids, though.. too spicy. My hubby and I loved it and the kick :)
