"This is one of the best, easiest, and tastiest vegetarian chili recipes I've ever tasted. Whenever I make it, my friends devour it. Best eaten with tortilla chips, Cheddar cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. What a treat! The recipe creator's name is Doc Meromorphic. He is a good friend of my family." — Simone

Delicious!! Instead of tofu, I used about 2 cups of TVP. Nobody even noticed that the TVP wasn't ground beef! Instead of all black beans, I used kidney, great northern, black, and pinto beans to give it a variety of color, texture and flavor. I also added some frozen corn to give it a little something extra. This is a delicious recipe and I will definitley use it again! If I am making it for just my husband and me, I will atleast halve this recipe as it makes alot!!
Not at all what I expected from all the hype. Definitely decent chili, but 5 stars? No. I followed the recipe exactly, but I was not very impressed. Sure, it was spicy. But flavorless.
3 stars though! Better than most!
Absolutely delicious - REALLY spicy, the mention of guacamole and sour cream is not really a suggestion. The chili had a great full body and did not seem too watery. A couple minor changes/substitutions I made - 1/2 less onion, 1/2 T of red pepper powder instead of Tabasco (I was out), 1 can of kidney beans instead of black beans (again, I was out). Even my carnivorous fiancee approved.
This is the best chili I've ever had. As a recently new vegetarian I was surprised as the tofu tastes just like meat! You'd never miss the meat. My carnivorous boyfriend loved it. I halved the recipe and it easily could of fed 6, so it makes A LOT! I'm not the biggest chili fan but I never thought to serve it with nachos, guacumoule, sour cream and cheese, a la Mexican style. Great idea and I'll totally make this one regularly.
Family and friends loved this chili!! I substituted Morning Star Vegetable Crumbles (it looks like pre-cooked hamburger) for the tofu and nobody knew that it was a vegetarian dish. Absolutely tasty!!!!
this recipe was really tasty! i cut back on the chili powder a bit to suit our tastes. the only problem i had was that it got a bit soupy by the end of cook time - so i added about 1 cup of cornstarch to thicken it up and it was delicious!
This recipe was flavourful and so tasty. I liked the combination of the different spices. I nixed the tofu and added a can of chickpeas and corn - it added a very good texture to the chili.
Yummy! We will never go back to regular chili again. I tried this recipe today for the first time and it seemed like a lot of food so I halved it and even then it almost filled my regular size slow cooker. It was awesome....didn't miss the meat at all. We don't like chili too spicy so we used less than half of the chili and hot sauce that was called for. I would recommend this to anyone, vegetarian or not.
