My daughter has become a vegetarain which has me often cooking 2 meals in one night.So I hopped online and started looking up chili dishes none to my liking so I just decided to make My chili without the beef or beef bouillon and man did I come up with a Yummy Pot of Vegetarian chili that ALL of us loved.
Try mine or add a few things of your own...You will Not miss the Meat. Even Die-hard Meat eaters Love this.

How to Make No Guilt Chili (Vegetarian)

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil and spices on low heat while you are chopping your veggies up.This wakes up the whole flavor of your spices although you "Do Not" have to do this.
  2. Chop all fresh veggies and put in your crock-pot as you go.
    Add water
  3. Put a Strainer in your sink.Open all cans of beans,pour then into the strainer and rinse them. This gets rid of some of the salt and the slimy juice they are in.
    Add beans to the crock-pot.
  4. Add all tomato products to pot.
    Add rice.(note...you will not see the rice when chili is cooked and finished,it's to help make the chili thicker and it seems to add where the meat is gone.
  5. Add All Spices and the oil add a small amount of water to get all the goodies out of the pan.
  6. Set Crockpot to high cook for 6/8 hours or longer.The longer it cooks the better.
    Serve with Corn chip and shredded cheddar. After all this is low in fat so you Can add the little extras.
  7. If you would like to take this one step more add a Good sloshing of Balsamic....gives this chili more of a kick!
