October is National Chili Month. What a perfect meal to enjoy on cool fall evenings. Chili is a spicy tomato based stew. It contains a blend of beans, seasonings, onions, garlic, peppers and typically, meat. However, I’ve discovered that plant based chilis are just as flavorful, warming and satisfying as those with meat.
This month, or any time this fall or winter, create one of these best vegan chili recipes, all without meat.

Quick Bean Chili

This recipe comes together quickly due to using canned goods, instead of dried beans. I like to use great northern beans, however any canned beans works. This is a moderately spicy chili. Adjust the heat level by adding or reducing the cayenne pepper. Use a small vegetable chopper to make quick work of prepping veggies.
