Best Vegeterian Chili Ever Recipe

I keep having people ask me again and again for a really good vegetarian chili and I think this is the best recipe ever for vegetarian chili. And I think a lot of people might be really surprised at how very good this vegetarian chili is. While you can use canned beans to make this chili I really strongly suggest using dry beans to make this chili with.

What you want to do is start with a one pound bag each of black beans , small white navy beans , and red kidney beans and you will want to start by washing your beans and look them well for any dirt or small stones. Once you have looked the beans place them all in a large stock pot and cover them with water. Let your beans soak over night or at least 12 hours. Once your beans have soaked a minimum of 12 hours you are ready to proceed with the recipe.

For Your Vegetarian Chili Recipe You Will Need.

1. Three Jalapenos with the seeds and membranes removed. Dice these up fine with a knife.

2. One Sixteen Ounce Bag Whole Kernel Corn.

3. One 28 Ounce Can Fine Diced Tomatoes.

4. One Green , One Red , One Yellow Bell Pepper all cleaned and diced up fine.

5. Two Cups Purple Sweet Onion Diced Fine.

6. Two Tablespoons Fresh Minced Garlic.

7. One Tablespoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.

8. Six Cups Vegetable Broth.

9. One Third Cup Of Chili Powder.

10. One Teaspoon Mexican Oregano.

11. One Fourth Cup Vegetable Cooking Oil.

12. One Half Cup Molasses.

13. One Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.

14. One Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper.

You will want to add your vegetable cooking oil to a large skillet and add your onions , peppers , jalapenos , and your garlic to the skillet and bring it up to medium heat stirring often and cook until your onions and peppers are soft and slightly brown.

At this point you can drain your dried beans and then add the cooked vegetables to the pot along with the beans. Now add in all the rest of your ingredients and turn the burner under the pot on low. You will want to cook this vegetarian chili for six to eight hours at a low simmer until your beans are done and the soup has thickened. Now you will want to add two six ounce cans of tomato paste to the chili and stir it in. Let it continue to simmer for another hour stirring often.

A Note Of Caution

Anytime you have to work with jalapenos be sure not to touch your eyes and wear gloves while you work with the jalapenos if possible. If you want the chili to be hotter leave the seeds and membranes in.

Once your vegetarian chili is cooked and ready you will want to serve it over squares of corn bread. The Mexican Corn Bread Recipe located here is very good with this vegetarian chili.

If you followed the above recipe then you have a true vegetarian chili that I guarantee you that everyone that tastes it will love it.

What I suggest you do is serve this delicious vegetarian chili over squares of the Mexican Corn Bread and serve sour cream and four cheese Mexican shredded cheese with your vegetarian chili.

      My aunt used to make chili with kidney beans, ground tofu and tomatoes along with her special blend of spices. It tasted just like the real chili with beef. Thanks so much for sharing this one! I look forward to trying it.

      I could enjoy this, but I'm pretty sure my family would not be happy leaving the meat out. They're definitely more carnivore than omnivore! LOL
