Wonderful chili recipe, very flavorful, and imho you definitely won't miss the meat! I have a 6-qt. crockpot, and as other reviewers stated, the ingredients filled it to the brim. Just a few minor modifications...I used a 16 oz. pkg. of frozen spinach, same size of frozen corn, only one onion, 3 tsps. jarred minced garlic, and added 2 cups cut-up fresh green beans I had on hand. As suggested by other reviewers, I skipped the sauteeing step and added the peppers, onions and garlic directly into the pot, and used canned Mexican-style tomatoes with green chilies. I also cut way back on the chili powder; I used 2 Tbsp., and that to me was the perfect amount, considering it also calls for a Tbsp. of cumin, which is similar to chili powder. Any more would have been too overpowering. The one ingredient I added that veered me off the vegan path was a cup of homemade chicken broth I had in the freezer, in lieu of vegetable broth. In all, the chili is excellent, and it came out perfect...not too thick OR thin. I cooked it about 6-1/2 hours total. It made plenty of leftovers, and right now I am enjoying a bowl of it for lunch as I type this.
