Spicy Vegetarian Chili — Meatless Monday

Spicy Vegetarian Chili
This time of year, as the days get shorter and the weather turns chillier, few things are more comforting than a hearty, piping-hot meal that’s loaded with rich, bold flavors. A warming bowl that never disappoints, chili is a cinch to prepare and can be easily adapted to your family’s favorite tastes and ingredients.

Food Network Magazine take everyday chili to a hot new level with its one-pot Spicy Vegetarian Chili (pictured above), made with a fragrant spice mixture of chili powder, cumin and oregano and a single, spicy chipotle pepper in adobo. Fresh, seasonal vegetables and beefy pinto beans add so much heft to this thick and hearty bowl that you won’t miss the meat of a traditional turkey or chicken chili. For simple family-friendly serving, set up a chili bar with an assortment of your favorite toppings, like Cheddar cheese, fresh scallions and more, and let everyone build his or her ideal chili bowls.

BiscuitsTo round out the meal, bake a batch of Paula’s old-fashioned Biscuits (pictured right). These light, fluffy beauties take just over a half hour to prepare and turn out wonderfully golden brown every time. Paula uses just a handful of everyday ingredients to prepare this tried-and-true side, best used as a second spoon to sop up the saucy, spicy chili.

    What's the point?

    Meat is not unhealthy.

      eating veggies instead of ground beef is healthier for you in terms of fat/calories/cholesterol. it is also better for the planet to go meatless when possible because growing veggies/legumes takes fewer resources and less energy than raising animals for slaughter.

    I so wish you would show more vegetarian and vegan recipies on youre channel Im sure their are cheifs or cooks out their that cook vegan and vegetarian and are vegan and vegetarians I love watching youre channel but would love it more because Im vegetarian.

    if everyone went to eating nothing but vegetables we would starve to death. Imagine over 300 milion people eating 3 mills a day of nothing but vegetables. Where would we get the land that is good enough to farm and raise them? I know; cut down more trees. No we can't do that. The tree huggers wouldn't let us. You always want to make everybody do what you think is best for them but you don't think a damn thing out. Why don't you and all the other Obama lovers move to Europe!

      There are other modern ways to grow vegetables today that take up less space, like vertical gardening. Many meat farms today are effecting the planet in a bad way, you don't have to blame others for stating facts you can google it and find out. Tree huggers that like trees are good for us, they defend our oxygen source.
