Awesome Vegetarian Chili

Ready in 45 minutes

Delicious vegetarian chili. You won't even miss the meat!

"Truly awesome! We like the heat. This smells so good when you cook the onions and seasonings. The tastes lives up to the smells. I used crushed tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes, then crushing them. The chili was thick, but still tasty. Next time I will get the right ingredients. Didn't use the crumbles and did't miss them either. The flavor and texture were just great! Makes lots of chili, there was enough for my family (3) to have seconds the first day. Then froze enough for later on. Thanks for sharing such a healthful and tasty recipe. ;-)"

Next time I will go lighter on the chili powder also, quite a bit of heat, but still very tasty. Use a BIG pot, this makes a lot of chili. I will make it again! :)

Excellent flavor, not too hot. Added a can of corn.

Didn't use the crumbles, and should have used half the chili powder - this version packs a lot of heat! Otherwise, delicious!

I am not a fan of the meat crumbles, so I just leave them out. The chili is still 'awesome.'

Awsome yummie! Only thing I changed was one can of Rotel diced instead of chrushed and Ranch Jalapeno pinto beans instead of garbonzo.... Sooo good and full of flavor... DH loved it! We are currently on the Daniels fast and this was GREAT and within guidelines!!! Will definately make again! Thanks so much for the recipe :)
