About this recipe: Now you can enjoy the tastes and delights of chilli con carne, but without the meat! You'd never notice that meat is missing in this recipe, it's that good. Double the recipe and freeze the leftovers.
Excellent! We loved this! Very filling and flavorful. My husband kept going back for more. - 11 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was better than I expected! I left out the bell pepper, mushrooms and red wine because I didn't have them on hand. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly, including the lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce which I was skeptical about. In the end, I'd say to be sure to include these two items and they added a flavor element that "brightened" the rest of the dish. We loved it! I know it will freeze well, so this one will be a staple in our packed lunches. - 30 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
When I make chili I make a huge pot so I can freeze some. So, I tripled the recipe and used three different kinds of beans. I drained them because I don't like the sliminess of the juice. I added some canned vegetable broth to make up for it. I also didn't use fresh tomatoes because winter tomatoes lack flavor so I used diced canned tomatoes and their juice. My kids won't eat mushrooms so I left them out, but I bet it would be great them. I added corn, chipotle and cilantro. - 03 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
