Amazing Chili!

Last night I made an amazing Chili that I just had to share with you!  Seriously, it is probably the best chili I've ever made and will now be my go to Chili recipe.  I made ours vegetarian but feel free to use organic beef or chicken if you prefer. 

1 tbsp. canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
16 oz vegetarian crumble (soy protein) such as Lightlife Smart Ground, original OR 1 pound Organic ground beef or boneless chicken breast, chopped
1 15 oz can kidney beans, drained
1 15 oz can pinto beans, drained
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. sea salt
1 tsp ground cumin
20 oz tomato sauce
1 tbsp. molasses
2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Sauté onions and garlic in the oil on medium heat.  Add the protein of choice and sauté until cooked or heated through.  Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for two hours.  Enjoy!

My son, our pickier eater, LOVED this!  He ate and entire bowl. :)  Ahhhh.....proud mommy moment.

I served this with some Gluten Free drop biscuits I had made earlier in the week and put in the freezer.  It would also go great with corn bread.

This winter has been brutal but Chili always warms up the home and your belly!

PS.  I apologize for no picture but we ate up the pot so fast I forgot to take a snapshot!  Next batch I promise!



  1. Sounds delicious! I have wanted to try chili with some vegan crumble - I usually do all bean. This looks like a must try! Glad everyone liked it!

  2. So yummy! I'm going to have to make more soon!
