Beef and Mushroom Chili

Submitted by: SWEETEST77

Introduction

This recipe uses mushrooms to replace half of the ground beef in a traditional chili recipe. Using mushrooms lowers the calore/fat content while retaining the meaty texture. Even my 8 year old mushroom hater gobbles it up!

*Cooking time includes a two hour simmer.

  • I loved this recipe. My husband who has a vege phobia loved it too. The mushrooms were the perfect addition to a great chili, I also added a little bit of cumin for that smoky chili flavor. - 10/25/11

  • I added about 2 teaspoons of sugar to cut the acidity in the tomatos, and 3 teaspoons of coco powder to give it a bit more depth of flavour.

    VERY yummy. It's simmering now, and I don't want to wait the 2 hours! - 9/3/10
