Vegetarian Chili

This tasty vegetarian chili recipe is healthy, hearty, and filled with ingredients you probably have on hand. I made a batch of this delicious chili for a recent lunch and boy did my house smell amazing for the rest of the day. I simmered the chili for 90 minutes before serving it with chips, cheese, green onions, pickled jalapenos, and sour cream. My husband and son each had two servings of this vegetarian chili and they really liked it. I had a bowl too and thought it was very tasty and didn’t miss the meat at all. I loved that the leftover chili was even more flavorful the following day. Quick, easy, and healthy recipes are the best.
