I am a single gal who is transitioning from a light meat eater (chicken, fish) to a vegetarian lifestyle, so this meat free chili for 2 was the perfect recipe for me. I love that it doesn't need meat to maintain that hearty, chili feel.
I stuck with the general idea of the recipe, but I didn't have several ingredients so I ended up tweaking it quite a bit. First, I didn't have chipotle powder. I did have a can 7.76 oz can of chipotle SAUCE (no peppers, just the sauce), of which I poured in about half. It has vinegar in it so I omitted the lime juice, but it was still a little on the tart side to I tossed a couple of dashes of sugar in. Also, the chipotle sauce has so much flavor I didn't use as much cumin. (I eyeballed it) I didn't have any cilantro either, so served it up by candlelight (romantic dinner with myself, haha) with a little bit of sliced green onion on top over some brown rice. Even with all the modifications, YUM. And even better, I had plenty of leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow.
Pros: Easy, cheap, and fast!
