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

WOWIE!! We loved this incredible vegetable chili. I did as you suggested and used plain canned diced tomatoes and added 1 cup chopped onion and 3 minced cloves. I like using fresh ingredients whenever possible. The seasonings were just right for this family and got raves from everyone. This will be added to our "make often" file. Thanks for posting this.

My mom and dad have been trying to adhere to a vegetarian diet for health reasons. I made this for us all to try. A huge success with all of us. Very spicy, hearty flavor and a great chunky texture. My husband and I salted ours but my parent's are not supposed to have much salt and did not complain of a bland flavor. That is miraculous. Thanks Nurse Di.

Delicious!!! I cut it in half, added a can of corn and added chopped carrots that I needed to use up. I tasted it after 3 hours and it was very spicy so we waited to eat it the next day and it had mellowed out just perfectly. It made so much, half went into the freezer stash. YUM!

This was very good. I didn't have great northerns on hand, so I used black beans. We have a vegetarian in the family, sothis is perfect because even the meat eaters loved it!

I loved it! I have to admit that I did not use only the vegetables that are mentioned in the recipe. I put anything that was about to go off into the pot. Everytime I make this this I still do it that way. Still it turns out wonderful everytime. Yum, Yum, Yum.

We liked this, however, was expecting it to be a little more like "chili".

Our family loved this Chili, and I have two teenage daughters who seldom agree on anything! Just the right amount of spice and good texture. Thanks for sharing, we'll make this often in the winter. Jan

I used sambal oelek (a tablespoonful)for my hot sauce and I really eyeballed the peppers and celery, just using up what I had in the fridge (probably more peppers than needed and less celery). I used fresh onion and garlic, and, as I only had 2 cans of kidney beans on hand, I made up the extra can with black beans. YUM! That's all I can say. And now my house smells good. Thanks!
