This recipe is a long-time favorite in my house. It's quick to make and is very healthy. The adobo chili is a must. You can find them in a small can in the Mexican food aisle of most grocery stores. This chili freezes well, so double the recipe if you want.

It was ok. Wouldn't make again. Tasted more like a tomato stew type dish rather than chili Read More

My husband and I loved this chili! Didn't even miss the fact that it was not made with meat. I had to substitute diced tomatoes because I did not have stewed. The chipotle gives it just the right amount of kick! Read More

I liked this chili. I added or adapted some things. I used tvp that I had soaked in water first. I used a homemade version of browning sauce and added extra adobe sauce and peppers. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
