Vegetarian Chili Recipe

This is an easy vegetarian chili recipe. The recipe produces a hearty homemade boca chili.

Vegetarian chili is excellent to serve to large groups of people at gatherings or parties.

Everyone seems to like it. It can be made the day before, refrigerated, and then reheated.

In fact, it benefits from being prepared in advance because that allows its flavors to develop fully.

Serve with a green salad for a balanced meal. Everyone should have at least one green salad each day.

As with all recipes, if they are available organic ingredients are a healthier choice and the better choice for our planet.

Please use them whenever possible.

The recipe contains soy and, so, is not suitable for anyone following the Paleolithic diet.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 10 Vegan Boca Burgers (They come 4 to each frozen box; ensure they’re marked “No Fat Original.”)
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced red pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (or pressed)
  • 1 jalapeno chili pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder (or more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup salsa (no added fat) [try hot Old El Paso.]
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can organic vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup water
  • sea salt

Recipe Method

You will need a large, heavy (preferably nonstick) covered pot.

(a) Cook Boca burgers according to package directions.

(b) Meanwhile, combine onion, green pepper, red pepper, garlic, jalapeno pepper, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and water in the pot. Bring to a simmer. Stirring occasionally, simmer for approximately five minutes until the vegetables are soft and the water evaporates.

(c) Chop Boca burgers coarsely, and add them to the pot. Also, add the tomatoes, salsa, and broth. Bring to a simmer. Cover and adjust heat to maintain a slow simmer. Cook about 20 minutes until chili is thick.

Add salt to taste.
