Try this easy vegan chili

My family was in town for a few days and I wanted something easy to make and keep in the fridge for me or them to eat whenever.

I used to make a great turkey chili so I reworked the recipe to make it vegan.

My meat-loving grandfather even enjoyed it!


  • 1 medium white onion
  • A few garlic cloves
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 small can of diced green chilis
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce
  • 1 medium can of diced tomatoes
  • Beans, beans, beans (whatever kind you like) around 4-6 cups.
  • 3 tbs chili powder and any other seasonings like black pepper or garlic

Toppings (optional but encouraged)

  • Diced red onion
  • Sliced avocado
  • Corn chips or any kind of chip or cracker
  • Vegan or real cheese
  • Vegan or real sour cream


  1. Sauté white onion, pepper and a few garlic cloves. I used a large pot for everything but you could cook these in a frying pan then toss in a crockpot
  2. Add diced tomatoes and diced green chilis, and let cook for a few minutes.
  3. Add tomato sauce and beans, I use two cans of chili beans and two cans of pinto beans
  4. Add chili powder and any other seasoning you might like
  5. Optional: add half a cup of water to thin it out a bit
  6. Let simmer on low for about 45 minutes or in a crockpot on low for a few hours
  7. Add topping and enjoy.
