Bulk up a vegetarian chilli and add extra flavour by using meaty portabello mushrooms. Serve with soured cream, if you like.
Excellent I did not add salt as it is not necessary but did add the black pepper. - 29 Jul 2012
My family loved it, since we went vegetarian. I added black beans and corn, and more mushrooms, chilli powder, Cayenne and basic seasonings. - 02 Mar 2018
I thought this was a really good beginning, GOURMETGUY. As did others, I added to it. More mushrooms (button), double the garlic, cumin and oregano, a can of pinto beans, a bit of tomato sauce and beef broth and some sauteed celery and green pepper made for one hearty and delicious chili-like mushroomy dish, which went really well wih Corn Muffins I (also from this site) and honey butter the first night. Served the leftovers atop buttered egg noodles, and that was good, as well. Thanks for the recipe. - 26 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
