Tips

I've been making this recipe for a couple of years now and have had a lot of fun surprising people with it.

For thicker chili: Cut the veggie broth in half, but know that you'll also be cutting the number of servings down. You can also mash some of the beans to release their starch to add thickness.

Not Vegetarian: Chicken or turkey taste great in this dish! I made this with leftover Thanksgiving turkey (and other veggies that were left) last year and it was a big hit!

More veggies: Corn really holds up well with the other flavors.

More heat: Add as many peppers as you can stand. As it, this is a mild chili.

  • This chili is very easy to make, and is very tasty. I added a little garlic, but otherwise kept everything as is. I took it to a luncheon and everyone loved it! - 1/31/12
