This is a must have for my recipe collection! I made it for my boyfriend and he LOVED it. The mixture of vegetables in this recipe was delighful. I didn't have the mushrooms and it still turned ot great. My boyfriend likes really spicy food so I added a tablespoon or so extra and also some red pepper. It was perfect! I served it over rice and it made for a very hearty meal. I would definitely make this again. It was the best vegetarian chili I have attempted to make. Read More

I made this recipe last summer and absolutely loved it - I can't remember if I altered anything or not though. I made it again this week and did not enjoy it like I remembered it - it was too watery this time - I will not fault the recipe though as this was more than likely my error since I loved this recipe the first time I made it. The first time I thought it was very flavorful and while it's all beans and veggies I found it to be very filling and satisfying. I will try this again and had I not screwed up I would have given this 5 stars. Read More
