Vegan Chili




Wow...this is a tasty chili recipe that is sure to please all chili lovers!


The beans are what makes this recipe complete and you have a couple of options available to you. You can use canned beans, which is the quicker option, or dried beans, which take longer to prepare. We prefer to use dried beans, which we batch cook in an Instant Pot. Whichever option you choose, this chili is tasty.
