I was a vegetarian for years and this chili is the result. It's my go-to chili recipe, I always freeze some for later. Be sure to use a pure chile powder, not a blend. My favorite is ancho, but if you like chipotle that's also readily available.

How to Make Bulgur Bean Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Open all beans, rinse, set aside. Measure seasonings and put in ramekin, put garlic in separate one. In large pot heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Chop veggies and place in pot, cooking for 4 minutes.
  2. Add garlic to pot, stir. Add spices and toast with veggies for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add bulgur, undrained tomatoes, and beans. Add soy sauce to water, then add to pot. Salt to taste. Mix well, and bring to boil (still over medium). Add in corn. Turn heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until bulgur is cooked, about 30 minutes.
