I could not find the specific brand of salsa, so used a cheap, generic chunky salsa and it was still excellent. The only thing was there were no instructions to chop the whole tomatoes beforehand. Next time I'll stick them in my blender on chop for a few seconds. I also wouldn't call this chili. There were nowhere near enough beans for that. I'd call this a good hearty vegetable soup. Next time I'll add a can of chili beans or some other type bean to make it more of a chili. I used medium salsa and it really wasn't very spicy at all.

This wasn't terrible, but it just tasted like salsa with corn and zucchini in it. maybe it would be better if you added another can of beans, because the beans are very sparse, which makes it hard to think of this as chili. It also needed a lot more spice than the recipe calls for.

Not spicy; add more chili powder, green chilis, and possibly jalapenos. Pretty good for yourself but I wouldn't make if trying to make an impression.

I have been using this recipe a lot, so I thought I should finally give a review. This is THE BEST chili I have ever had!!!! So delicious and perfect for vegetarians!!!! We did a few modifications. We added a package of morningstar veggie crumbles, an extra can of black beans (as previously suggested), about a cup extra of zuccini, and lots more chili powder mix (just keep adding to taste). This time we used Newman's Own salsa (we usually use the taco bell salsa as suggested which is really great) which is great also. Just wanted to say thank you and this is the BEST chili ever!!!!

Always a favorite with my housemates-- and only one of them is a vegetarian! It takes no time to make and tastes great with shredded cheddar on top.

I was skeptical of this recipe since it was so easy and didn't require an onion or garlic! It was EXCELLENT. My father-in-law, mother-in-law and hubbie LOVED it. My husband is so excited that even he could make this chili (he is not gifted in the culinary arts). Very tastey. Thank you!

Very easy! I added more veggies, carrots, yellow squash. I added a dash of red wine and let it simmer for an hour. Another good adjustment has been adding crumbled tempeh for a thicker chili.

My son and I thought it was great, but my hubby was looking for the meat and was disappointed when he didn't find any. Very easy and tasty!
