Blown away!! Hands down one of the best chili's I've ever ate. Used 1 can kidney and 1 can black beans, added some bell pepper, used all organic ingredients. The Jalapeño and smoked paprika really make the dish something special. This one's definitely a keeper and that's a first so far since becoming vegetarian. Thanks a lot stephlee12!! Read More

Very tasty! Who would have thought vegan dishes can be delicious. You won't miss the meat in it! I used homegrown jalapeno pepper, sweet potatoes and tomatoes, which made me happy to be able to use produce from my garden. Made about 1.5 of the recipe. I didn't have vegetable broth on hand and substituted with vegetable base Better Than Bouillon", combination of kidney beans, black beans, and pinto beans. No where in the instruction when to put tomato paste in, so I put it in with the sweet potatoes and spices. I also added a can of drained sweet corn at the end to balance the spices and heat. It turned out very good, nice and thick! Husband loved it as well. Thanks for the recipe. It's a keeper! Read More

I will definitely make it again. My family and I are new o the vegan life and this was so tasty it didn't leave me missing meat. I made some changes however : no jalapeño, I used weet bell peppers instead and only a few, I also used 1 can of black beans vs the suggested kidney kind, I used 2 fresh cut up tomatoes, and a can of tomato paste, and organic corn too give it more sweetness for my toddlers. together it took about 30 min I served it with brown rice and avocado.

engl219.J.L. Let me start with this. I am an avid meat eater hamburgers hot dogs Texas Roadhouse s fall of the bone ribs; I eat it all. Then one day we had a party and guess what! It was all vegan. Have I ever had something vegan? No. Did I ever think that I really would? Not really. But let me tell you something; this chili is amazing. I was kinda skeptical but when I tried it they actually were not that bad. This chili tasted like any other chili that I had had beside it being meatless. I do not like sweet potatoes and in this recipe there are a lot of them. They were used as the meat substitute. However you couldn t even really tell that they were in there. They were not to sweet and they soaked up all of the flavor of the rest of the chili. The base of the chili was really good. It has a few different types of beans and many vegetables. Also if you cook it right it is not a watery chili. Let's be honest who wants a watery chili. But it also was not a super thick chili. All of the different veggies in it all went together perfectly. The chili wasn t too spicy but it also was not bland. It had a perfect balance of spicy and savory with just a hint of sweet from the sweet potatoes. To garnish it it says you can put in cheese and sorry cream. But this was a vegan party so we did vegan sour cream and vegan cheese which was just as good. This chili was amazing. With its accents of different flavors but also the balance of flavors. It smelled amazing and that me Read More

This was really good! I didn't have smoked paprika so I used sweet paprika and some chipotle spice blend with a dash of liquid smoke. Skipped the pepper flakes. I would make this again. Read More
