Vegetarian chili that is full of soulful flavor and hearty enough to stick to your bones??? Say it aint so!!!! I’ll admit vegetarian chili didn’t sound that appealing to me at first. I guess I’m just not a real veggie lover (although I’m trying to be) I’m a meat & potatoes, (cakes, cookies, ice cream, pies, candy,) kinda girl and it just seemed like a cruel thing to do to chili…you know, adding all those vegetables and stuff. My oldest sister, who is a vegetarian, has been telling me how fabulous her vegetarian chili recipe is for the longest. Even though she is one of those “healthy people” I trust her when she tells me something vegetarian tastes good.

(you can thank for my sister Nikki, although I did tweak this recipe a bit from the original) This vegetarian chili recipe does not disappoint! It’s hearty, mild enough for my toddler, yet my spicy, meat- chili-loving husband gave it 5 stars! I found myself eating my second bowl without even noticing it. It’s loaded with fresh vegetables like zucchini, peppers and corn, three kinds of beans, and a perfect blend of savory spices! This vegetarian chili can easily be customized with your favorite veggies or kick up the

    I have some black olives that I’m going to put in insead of salt. My boss, decades ago, used to add air popped popcorn. His wasn’t veg, but it was to make others think there was more meat!…hahaha

    Tex-mex is where Chili started….a staple spice of tex-mex food is Cumin. Therefore without cumin there is no chili 😛
