Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large green pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1 large white or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 28-oz. cans diced tomatoes with green chilis
  • 1 ½ cups dry TVP
  • 2 ½ cups water
  • ¼ cup chili seasoning
  • 1 15 oz. can yellow corn, drained
  • 2 15-oz cans beans, drained (We use 1 can black beans + 1 kidney beans.)

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot on medium high heat. When hot, add the peppers, onions, and carrots along with a pinch of salt and saute for 3-5 minutes or until the onions are fragrant.
  2. Add the tomatoes, water, TVP, and chili seasoning and stir. Turn the heat to medium low, cover the pot, and let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the corn and beans. Stir, cover, and let it simmer for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Serve this vegan chili hot, topped with cilantro, vegan cheese shreds, chopped green onions, dairy-free sour cream, the works! See notes for ideas to cut / intensify the heat. You can store leftovers for up to a week in the fridge or 2 months in the freezer. Enjoy!

Notes

TO CUT THE HEAT: (1) Add 1 Tbsp peanut butter to the chili (and more to each bowl if needed) (2) Add a traditional dollop of vegan sour cream or ranch . TO INTENSIFY HEAT: (1) Keep the seeds with the jalapeno, or just puree jalapeno - seeds and all - with the water (2) Branch out to some of the truly hot chilis and peppers (3) Saute extra ½ tsp - 1 tsp red pepper flakes with the onion and peppers (4) Add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce
