Ultimate Vegan Chili

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by BB2011

From Vegetarian Times February 2010. This chili is made with a base of seitan and mushrooms for a rich, thick dish that is, for lack of a better word, meaty! If you like your chili three-alarm hot, add an extra chipotle chile or two.

This is a good bean stew, I made it as stated, but it doesn't taste much like a "chili."
