Can anyone help me out with a great recipe?  I have a veg friend who is pp, and I'll be making 2 batches of chili this week for myself and another friend, and figure I might as well just make up another batch.  But I've never made veg chili.  In fact my personal recipe doesn't even use beans, it's just meat and spices.  So what do you put in your (veg) chili so that it's not just a pot of beans with spices?  I'm thinking veggies, since buying a meat sub isn't an option.

This one.  Hands down!  I make it and then freeze individual portions. 

 

Sometimes I'll overload the rice and use it for tacos or burritos.

I actually got the recipe from this board many moons ago.

I like this one:

The beer and mustard powder sounds weird, but it's so good. You can use dried beans, too, or fewer varieties as long as the total amount is about the same.

Seriously!  I haven't even felt the need to try another recipe since this one.  Plus, it's been my go to potluck/ bring a meal to a family dish all winter.

The above recipes sound good.  I always kinda make mine up as I go along. . .

 

Veg-wise, I usually use 1-2 peppers, large onion, 2-3 carrots, 2-3 celery stalks.  Sometimes I add corn (usually frozen, especially if using black beans), sometimes cubed sweet potato.  I usually like a variety of beans in my chili (so black, kidney, and garbanzo most often).  And in with all that there's canned tomatoes/sauce and spices.  Then I spice it until it tastes good.
