"Delicious chili with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers, carrots, corn, and several kinds of beans. Great as a snack or as a whole meal. Can feed an army or keep for days. Serve with a sprinkling of cheese. You may also add a 12 ounce package of vegetarian burger crumbles after the ingredients come to a boil."

This recipe is good, but I made some changes. First I drained the beans (and added veggie stock), left out the mushrooms, and added celery. I also cooked this for much longer, close to an hour. Very filling and delicious.


I really enjoyed this recipe and have gotten many compliments on it. It is also very adaptable and forgiving :) I also like that it makes a huge amount of food, for less $ than some of the other chili recipes on here. I've added some zucchinni that was about to turn, played w/the beans and added only red pepper, or only green pepper. The only thing I like to keep constant is the spices (well actually, I estimate according to the recipe), and play w/the vegetables. Another thing I've changed is to rinse the beans and add a little more water. Otherwise, you get caught up with ridiculous gas pains. Great great recipe, thanks so much!!

What a Dish!

I've finally found it- the perfect recipe for bean veggie chili!! I love Stagg's Garden Vegetable Chili, but would like it to be more "fresh" and less salty. Well, this is like a fresher, healthier version of that chili. I just love it! I omitted the mushrooms, added one jalepeno and had to use roasted red peppers for the red ones because I was out of fresh. I made this in the crockpot and it worked out perfectly. I added about 1/2 cup of water but around midday, it was too thin so I added a 6 oz. can of no-salt tomato paste. I love, love, love this recipe! It makes A LOT too- we'll be enjoying this for a few days- yay! I might try freezing some. I served this with Fry Bread I for dinner. Oh, my one-year old loved this too. He just ate and ate and ate. Good for the whole family!
