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!

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.

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!!
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.
