Vegetarian Chili

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by DoremiAZ

This is so easy and quite tasty! If you want to add meat you can; sometimes I serve this with ground beef or turkey on the side for the meat eaters. I like to use a mix of light and dark red kidney beans to make it more colorful.

Good vegetarian chili. Subbed one can kidney beans for one can black-eyed peas. Furthermore I added one teaspoon salt and one tablespoon soy sauce at the end of cooking time since we found it a little bland. That lifted up the taste and made the chili very nice indeed. We did miss vegetables and next time I will add a bag of mixed vegetables. When making it I felt I was making a "can meal" since one can after the other was put into the pot. But OK, it was nice and I served it with grated cheese and sour cream. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC, Fall 2009.
