Half-Hour Chili

EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals (2011)

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (53 votes)

This truly tasty half-hour vegetarian chili is made possible by using convenient canned beans and tomatoes (no pantry should be without them). Whole-grain bulgur adds another layer of toothsome texture and nutritional heft. This chili is relatively mild, so it’s a good crowd-pleaser. If you like it spicy, add extra chili powder or serve with hot sauce.

Really Enjoyed this Vegetarian Chili

I made this recipe as directed with the only exception being I did not have any bulgur on hand. I replaced the bulgur with an equal amount of wheat berries, which worked out very well. I served with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and saltine crackers. Cornbread would be a great addition next time I make this wonderful chili!

Easy to put together in a matter of minutes
Minor Change

I usually use seitan in my chili, but will definitely try the bulgar wheat instead. I will use green peppers, and I always use a small amount of cocoa powder to balance the sweet bitter of chili. For me, cocoa is essential for chili!!

Hearty and Delicious

This recipe is easy to make and vry tastey. I had to add more spice and jalapenos to it as we thought it could use a bit more but we like things on the spicy side. The only thing I would like to see different is maybe a bit more carrots and maybe some bell peppers.
