I am giving this recipe 4 stars, because, although I think it is good, it is not stupendous. I made this recipe directly as written. But, this could be a very good low-budget recipe. You could use 2 green peppers and pre-cooked dry beans. You could also add other veggies to this recipe such as corn, or shredded carrots. We live in NM, and they make these things called "Frito Pies" here. So, I served this chili over a "bed" of fritos for my kids. I topped the adult's version with shredded cheese and sour cream.

Wonderful Chili, I've been looking for a vegetarian recipe and here's my keeper! The only thing I found was that there was just not enough liquid in the pot, so I added some water and then thickened it up with corn starch.

This maybe one of the best vegetarian chili's I have ever had. It had a great smokey flavor to it. Gay made it for me when I was at her house. She made a meat version for the rest of the group.
