Ratings & Reviews



Delicious! The flavours melded together nicely. The serving size is genorous and more than enough to satisfy even the hungriest person. This recipe is a keeper!


This was a great vegetarian chili that meat lovers enjoyed as well. This is a very filling recipe that was easy to make with great flavour. I couldn't find chipotle chili powder, but regular chili powder worked just fine. I did add two jalepenos to spice things up a bit too. Loved it!

This delicious meatless chili can be part of a healthy eating plan. As a bonus, the black beans and kidney beans team up to provide a very high source of fibre per serving.
