Vegan’s Vegetarian Chili Recipe

Vegan’s Vegetarian Chili Recipe, This is always my go-to chili recipe. I’m a vegetarian but all of my meat eating family and friends absolutely love this dish as well. You can add a diced jalapeno to add an extra spicy kick.  It always turns out great and my friends beg me for the recipe!
