Best Vegetarian Chili Recipe

Chili does not have to take all day to make; and in fact, while this dish is usually a spicy beef stew with chili peppers, spices and tomatoes, it does not have to include any of these ingredients. After all, Texas style chili normally does not have beans or tomatoes – and you can make a great batch of chili which omits the meat entirely!
This is a simple, yet very flavorful and just spicy enough vegetarian chili recipe which does not skimp on flavor while providing plenty of fiber, protein and nutritional value in every bowl. You may not be converted to vegetarianism by this recipe, but you will definitely appreciate how good chili can be even without the beef which is usually the star of the show.

Try making this dish with a mixture of kidney, black and pinto beans for variety, each has its own subtly different flavor and texture to contribute. If you find this recipe a little too spicy you can decrease the amount of jalapeno, if desired – and if you would like to add any other vegetables to the mix, this is a very forgiving recipe, so go right ahead!

If you have always thought of vegetarian chili as a dull, bland proposition, think again. This recipe is spicy, flavorful and thanks to the mix of different beans and corn, hearty and satisfying as just about any meat based chili recipe out there. It takes well to the addition of other vegetables, so feel free to experiment with this recipe and see what works for you (summer squash is an especially good addition to this vegetarian chili recipe). Especially served along with a piece of cornbread, this is one vegetarian meal where you will never feel that there is anything missing from.
