I made this chili for a Cowboy-themed birthday party. Not all of my family eats meat, so this was perfect. EVERYONE loved it, and several were surprised it didn't have meat. The variety of beans/veggies makes up for the lack of meat.
The changes I made: no mushrooms (again, picky family); I drained the beans and added 5.5 oz water per can to make up for the liquid lost; I used only 1/2 the amount of cumin, and this is what I did with the spices: after sauteeing the veggies, I combined ALL the spices in a bowl along with 3 TBS. flour. Then I sprinkled this evenly over the veggies, stirring while they sauteed for a few minutes, and then I added in the tomatoes and everything else.
This was delicious and perfect for company. I served it with sour cream and cheddar cheese, and wished I'd made a double batch! With a party of 26 people, there wasn't a drop of chili left.
