    I didn't have fire-roasted tomatoes, so I used fire-roasted peppers and fresh tomato. I also added some chili powder. It came out really good! My girlfriend happily asked for seconds, the real test. I'm adding this to my list.

    Fantastic and simple. I added a few ingredients of my own, and it turned out really well! Added: Vegan Beef-less Crumbles Chili powder Onion and Garlic powder Cayenne pepper As well as some white agave nectar to sweeten it up a bit. With our homemade cornbread this chili was really tasty!

    Amazing, can’t believe what a great substitute to a meat chili. I myself use to be a hug meat eater, these is my new go to for chili. Even my picky 6 & 7 year old eat it I recommend to anyone and everyone.

    It is absolutely delicious. Nobody knew it was vegan. Wow!!!!!!! I used half a jalapeño because mine was super hot. It is so good and I’m irritated I didn’t double it. I will definitely make again and pass along to family n friends!!!

    It was good! I used larger proportions of all seasonings, and I also added a bit of brown sugar to cut the acidity.

    Great, we all loved it! Can’t wait to make it again 💥
    This recipe is a good base. Lime juice is the key. I also doubled garlic, onions, walnuts, tomato paste, jalapeño and cumin. I added a spoon full of organic maple syrup, added teaspoon of chipotle Chile pepper, 1 lime juice, green pepper, sub vegetable stock for water and a dash of salt. It was amazing!

    I cut this recipe in half and added half a red bell pepper and 1/2 tsp of chili powder. Also used broth instead of water. I love the walnuts in it! But it did need more salt/pepper & crushed red at the end.

    Delicious! I added 1 extra can of beans and didn’t have a jalepeno on hand so i added just a bit of ancho chile spice. Will make again!

    This recipe is the bomb diggity, I used a bag of Gardein beefless crumbles instead of the walnuts and it turned out amazing. But the secret ingredient to make the best chili is Adobo!!
