Vegetarian chili? From a cowboy museum? Yup! It's delicious, even better the next day; and a best seller at the Golden Spur Cafe at the museum. The recipe was published in the reader request column of the Los Angeles Times.

I love this recipe, the chili is delicious. I freeze it and use it as I need it and it always tastes great. This is one of my favourite dinners.
