Meatless chili is a staple in our house. We try to eat meatless meals at least 3 times a week so I make it a priority to just pop open a few cans of beans, throw in some seasonings and let this meatless chili do it's own thang. I chose to add a bit of turmeric to complement the heat of the chili powder as well as honey to act in place of the traditional brown sugar that is usually added to chili. If you're looking for that special vegetarian dish than this meatless chili is a winner! This pairs nicely with my Sriracha Garlic Bread.
