    I added a bit more chili powder and it was perfect.

    Tasty chili! I doubled the chili powder and added some diced shiitake mushrooms for some added texture

    Great! I used less tomato juice because I like thicker chili

    Good recipe! My roommate can’t handle spicy stuff, so I removed the jalapeños, and we didn’t have carrots, but otherwise this was a delicious recipe and I will definitely make it again! Adding the cheese, avocado, sour cream, and tortilla strips to my individual serving was the perfect choice!

    Make this often on our “Meatless Mondays”. So easy and healthy and tastes great. Family doesn’t miss the meat either!

    We love this recipe! A little prep goes a long way. I use V-8 instead of tomato juice...personal preference. Topped with avocado, tortilla strips, cheese and sour cream makes this dish as impressive as the taste.

    IT WAS SOOO GOOD!! I’m a beginner cook and it was so easy! The only thing I suggest is that you cover it half way into the 45 minutes!!

    My first vegetarian chili and it was very good. I did 2 cans of beans to help cut down the size (cannelloni and black). I will make again.

    It was good. I added a lot more vegetables to it and a few more spices but the base was tasty too.

    Tasty! Made this to have with my vegetarian SO, but you could easily throw in some ground beef if you like meaty chili and it would be just as great!

    Delicious! Added zucchini and celery, so I used only 1 large carrot, and added a little extra chili powder and cumin. Big hit with the wifey!

    Love this. Added some crunchy tortilla chips to it as well as vegan ground beef crumbles. Added them in at the end and cooked the addiction ten minutes. Made a perfect “meatless” chili

    Super quick, easy, yummy recipe! It can definitely be tweaked and still come out good. I omitted a can of beans and left out one pepper to make a smaller amount and it was still so good!

    Simple to make, though it took me a little longer than the recipe said. Flavor was excellent. I left out the jalapeño and added some cinnamon and it turned out very nicely.

    Great base recipe...I added in corn, green chilis, and some tajin clasico seasoning and it was wonderful.
