This might be my new favorite chili recipe! The quinoa makes it SUPER HEARTY and gives it a great texture. I agree with mersaydees that it would be nice with red quinoa, but my white quinoa was just fine. I made it as directed, except that I added some sliced mushrooms with the other veggies. I served it with hot sauce and fresh cilantro. It made a TON, way more than 6 servings, probably more like 8 or 10 servings. The leftovers are really good; I'm planning to freeze some.

Super hearty! Added chili paste, beer, zucchini, mushrooms, Slap Yo' Mama seasoning, and 2 cans of 3-color beans. People have said it is the best vege chili they've ever tasted. Very healthy.
Perfect recipe. Followed it to the T!
This was great! I make a pretty standard vegetarian 3-bean chili, and this was different enough I feel I can keep both in my go-to recipe collection. I added extra cumin and the pinto beans I used had jalapenos right in with them. Served with guacamole on top and the (normally meat eating) boyfriend loved it.
This is a fantastic one-dish meal chili. I used red quinoa and it really gave it a classic dark chili appearance in spite of the pinto beans! The leftovers will be going to work as a hearty lunch. I served with a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheddar cheese. Thanks, Katzen! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap, January 2011.
Fantastic chili! It is colorful and flavorful with all of the veggies! I used a combo of orange and green peppers and pinto beans. Warming and filling, perfect for a cold day! Thanks for sharing! Veg*n Swap 30
Delicious!! I am always on the lookout for recipes using quinoa, so I was thrilled to find this one. This goes together quickly and easily, and is so full of flavor. Knowing that quinoa usually soaks up a lot of the liquid in a recipe, I added an extra cup of the vegetable stock. Also, I used a can of kidney beans instead of the pinto beans, and I used the liquid from the beans. My family loved this and it will be added to my growing collection of quinoa recipes. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!
