Vegetarian Chili

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Top Review by bohorquez

Super recipe! We were on a very strict veggie diet and this came in handy. Everyone couldn't stop commenting on what a great taste this chili has. I did not add the can of beer nor did I remove the basil leaves after I simmered. I did have a little trouble finding the can of diced tomatoes with onion and garlic, but I did find it! Plus I think the entire process took an hour. Thanks so much
