This recipe is for a vegan "true" chili. This is not going to be a chili bean recipe or a soup, although I'm sure i would be good, with some modifications, as either. This is adapted from "Jeff's Hot Dog Chili" which can be found here: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/223538/jeffs-hot-dog-chili/ . It is a perfect topper for hot dogs, chili cheese fries and sloppy joes. I know there are a lot of ingredients but it will be worth it. If you are not vegan, it is great with shredded cheese on top. I eat mine with diced onions, shredded cheese and yellow mustard. Enjoy!
