This chili recipe is super simple and can easily be modified for meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans. That way, everyone is happy, including the cook. I made up this recipe because the fact that I’m a vegetarian and my husband isn’t making it difficult to cook sometimes.

Lots of nights I have to make two totally separate meals and that takes up a lot of time. This is something we both enjoy and can both eat!

Vegetarian Chili

If you’re a vegetarian, omit the beef.

Vegan Chili

If you’re a vegan, omit the beef and cheese.

This makes enough chili for my husband and I both to have it everyday for lunch or dinner for a week. Just store all of your leftovers in an air tight container or casserole dish in the fridge.

You can sprinkle cheese and sour cream on top before you eat it, too.

Enjoy!
