Here’s my recipe for a delicious vegaterian friendly chili! I have been weaning off of red meat recently, and can vouch that this meal will definitely satisfy any type of chili or meat craving. (I know it satisfies mine)
2 cups of Gardein beefless ground (or any other beef free ground you can find)
1tbsp of garlic
1tbsp olive oil
1 15oz cans of diced tomatoes (with green chilies)
1 15oz cans of red kidney beans
1/2 tsp of Chili powder (adjust this to your style of taste because the green chilies in with the tomatoes are really spicy as it is )
1tsp of Mrs. Dash Salt Free roasted garlic and herb
1tsp of Mrs. Dash Table Blend
1/2 cup of diced onions (frozen or raw)
Directions: in a medium frying pan, put your olive oil in the pan until it heats up. After this, put your diced onions into the pan and fry it on medium high until they are brown.
Once browned, add your beefless ground into the pan. Make sure to add your garlic and all your spices in with your beefless ground.
Once your beefless ground is thawed in the pan, add your can of diced tomatoes with green chili’s and can of red kidney beans. DO NOT DRAIN.
be sure to taste test your chili, as you may need to adjust the spices to your taste.
Lower the pan to medium heat, and allow the chili to simmer. Once simmered for 5-10 minutes, turn off the heat and enjoy. Refrigerate any leftovers you have for another day. Double the recipe to serve more people!
I will note, If you need to keep your diet with less salt, feel free to use salt free canned diced tomatoes as a substitute. Also, I have added a 1/2 cup of diced green peppers to this recipe before and it came out just as good. This meal can be great on top of rice.
