Vegetarian Green Chili

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

I found this recipe in the local paper a few years ago and have been making it ever since. I prefer this vegetarian version over the traditional recipe which normally includes pork. It is wonderful over burritos, eggs or even plain with tortillas.

Yummers! I doubled the green chilis and would do that again. We used it to smother bean and cheese burritos. Super quick and tasty. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
