Make a Meal Monday: ‘What Do You Mean It’s Not Real?’ Chili

I’ve decided to get back into the habit of sharing recipes with you guys, so I’m going to make every Monday a recipe day! Most of my recipes are vegetarian, but there will be some (hopefully!) that include meat as well.

Because it’s been so cool here in Georgia today, I thought I’d share my recipe for vegetarian chili. I love chili, and this version apparently, tastes like it’s made with meat. In fact, we took a big batch a vegetarian potluck a few years ago, and the host pulled us aside, thanking us for our contribution but reminding us that it was a *vegetarian* meal. She was quite surprised when we told her that it was, in fact, vegetarian! I don’t think we had anything left to take home that night. That’s just how good it is.

You can add anything you want to it. We like to add onions and jalapeno peppers. Yum! It’s very hearty, and we always have a ton of leftovers. Doesn’t this just look delicious??

And now, for the important part — the recipe:

1 package Griller Crumbles
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans dark red kidney beans
2 packets chili seasoning (we use 1 original, 1 hot)
chili powder to taste
1 onion
Jalapeno peppers to taste

Brown the Griller Crumbles in a pot (no oil necessary). Add tomatoes, kidney beans, seasoning, chili powder, onions and jalapenos. Stir, cover pot and simmer for 20 minutes.
