This is a delicious chili! I made it just as posted and it turned out great - thank you for posting.
Great vegetarian chili! I did not add sugar and cut the tomatoes in half. I was a little leery about adding zucchini, but it was a pleasant addition.
This chili was excellent! It wasn't too spicy at all and was delicious. Although, it WAS a little sweet, so I think next time I will cut the amount of sugar used in half. The only thing I did differently was add 1-2 cups of water because the resulting chili was really really thick and my family prefers it be a little more runny. I will definitely be making this one again.
I really changed the recipe quite a bit, but it was still very delish. Thanks :)
We have been looking for a good vegetarian chili for years - we didn't find a good one with this recipe we found a GREAT chili. The first time we made it we took it to a pot luck dinner. After lots of scoffing from the men about it being vegetarian they ALL went back for seconds!!
The first time we used a chipotle chili in a little adobe sauce and reduced the chili powder to two tbsp - this was an ideal temp for not so adventurous chili lovers. As I said above, it was a big hit with everyone. The next time we used jalapeno and again reduced the chili powder to 1 1/2 tbsp. It made a VERY flavorsome chili which is not heavy or greasy.
Favorite chili recipe! and makes a good base to experiment with a few different ingredients. YUM!
I won a chili cookoff at work with this recipe. My meat loving competitors were pretty ticked off. I love this chili.
I made a few changes as I had Roma tomatoes on hand; pureed w/ 2 whole carrots. I used drained limas as I can't tolerate most beans......very tasty! Thanks
This was so much better than traditional chili. It was like a hearty vegetable soup chili. I thought the pintos were great, but used twice as many black beans as called for. I also added a celery stick after reading the other reviews. Very, very good, thank you! I have been looking for a vegetarian chili recipe like this.
This is delicious. I did not have bell peppers so I used carrots and celery. It is as chunky and hearty as any meat chili and has twice the flavor b/c of the jap and spicy tomatoes. Great!
