Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegan Cooking
by Beverly Lynn Bennett & Ray Sammartano
Mushrooms have a meaty, chewy texture and take the place of ground beef, while a generous amount of spices and chipotle chiles in adobo sauce provide a smoky flavor and add a lot of heat to this all-veggie, soy-free chili.
Prep time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 to 30 minutes
Serving size: 1½ cups
Yield: 6 servings



• 1½ cups onion, diced
• 2 TB. olive oil
• 3/4 cup green bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, and diced
• 3/4 cup red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, and diced
• 1 jalapeño pepper, ribs and seeds removed, and finely diced
• 12 oz. crimini mushrooms or other mushrooms of choice, coarsely chopped
• 2 TB. garlic, minced
• 2 tsp. chili powder
• 2 tsp. canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, pureed
• 1½ tsp. ground cumin
• 1½ tsp. dried oregano
• 1 (15-oz.) can black beans or black soybeans, drained and rinsed
• 1 (15-oz.) can pinto beans or kidney beans, drained and rinsed
• 1 (14-oz.) can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes
• 1 (14-oz.) can diced tomatoes with green chiles
• 3/4 cup water
• 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
• 3/4 tsp. sea salt
• 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


1. In a large pot, combine onions and olive oil, and sauté over medium heat, stirring often, for 3 minutes or until soft. Add green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and jalapeño pepper, and sauté for 2 minutes.

2. Add mushrooms and garlic, and sauté for 3 to 5 more minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add chili powder, chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, cumin, and oregano, and sauté for 1 minute.

3. Stir in black beans, pinto beans, crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, water, cilantro, salt, and black pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until tomatoes begin to break down. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or cornbread, if desired.

Variation: For a less-spicy chili, omit the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce and use 1 tablespoon chili powder instead.

Definition: Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked whole jalapeño peppers canned in a red sauce that typically contains tomatoes, onions, garlic, oil, vinegar, herbs and spices, and salt. The mixture has a hot, smoky flavor, and the chipotle chiles are usually finely minced or pureed prior to use.
