Soy Chorizo Vegetarian Chili

PREP TIME: 10 minutes  COOK TIME: 15-20 minutes  SERVES: 10 


Similar to traditional chili, but with a Mexican spin using the kick of spicy chorizo!  The chorizo has enough flavor to carry the dish - no chili powder needed.  This recipe makes a large batch, perfect for parties and large gatherings, but you can easily cut in half.

Fast and delicious! Quick tip--the Trader's Joe's staffer who gave out samples at the store we visited made this recipe even easier--one can black beans, one can white beans, one jar salsa, one pkg soy chorizo--that's it! Throw it all in a saucepan and heat. We made it in minutes, delish. I recommend using beans and salsa that are low sodium to help offset the high sodium in the soy chorizo.

This is really good! I've made it for my husband for dinner (half batch) and made a full batch for a pot luck at work. Quick and easy to make and always comes out good! This is one that I'll be making may times more.

I made this last night and really liked it. There is no mention of adding any other moisture to the recipe, so I added about a cup of chicken broth to the dish to give it a little more juice. It is good, especially with some yogurt added to it.
