This is a meatless chili. I have never put any meat in it. It doesn't need it at all. It is a very different Chili. I found this recipe years in a magazine (can't even remember which one). I have revised it to my liking. This is one recipe you can do with different beans. I like to use dry beans and mix different ones together cook them and use them in this recipe. Hope you enjoy it!
