The NFL play-off season is upon us, the women are cringing and the men are taking over our meticulously decorated living rooms. There is something to say about the amount of passion that flows through their veins at this time. Statements such as “where was this passion last week,” and “If only I could get you this excited about the ballet…”

When they start yelling “Baby, baby, baby Look! baby!” like you actually give a crap, just serve this amazing dish to shut them up; they’ll never know it doesn’t have meat in it.

Kick Ass Veggie Chili
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A mean veggie chili as hearty as the one you make on Superbowl Sunday.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
  1. Instead of the last two spices feel free to use 1 packet of pre-made chili spice.
  2. In a very large pot on medium heat, begin to mix all ingredients, adding in the spices last.
  3. Bring the chili to a boil then reduce heat to simmer for 1 hour on low heat.
  4. Please taste while it is simmering… it is hard not to!
This chili gets better with age ( as most vegetarian recipes do) so it is even better a day or two later after the spices flavours have been infused into the beans and TVP goodness. You can also freeze leftovers and save some for next week. Or take it to your next Tail Gate!

**TVP- texturized vegetable protein

  • SO good! Doubled the recipe. Did not have dark beer so used the equivalent of Yondu vegetable umami liquid. Sub’d fresh chopped tomatoes for canned. Also added chopped carrots and corn to add some color. Turned out amazing. Everyone loved it.

  • 1 TABLESPOON of cayenne? And 2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes? Wondering if that was a mistake? I made this with half a teaspoon of each, and it was plenty spicy. I can handle spice but I feel like a tablespoon of cayenne in this dish is like going to an Indian restaurant and asking for your dish to be extra spicy! I didn’t use beer or espresso, subbed veggie broth instead. LOVED this recipe with these modifications! First time trying TVP and it’s awesome in this recipe!

  • This was amazing! I cut way back on the spice and left out the TVP since I was afraid it would absorb too much liquid. Also sauteed the onion, mushroom, and garlic in some oil before adding the other ingredients. It’s earned a place on our repeat list!

  • Marie-Michele Dore says:

    The. Best. Chili. Ever! Simply!

  • Jennifer Irish says:

    I watched the video and it doesn’t mention the TVP. Should I hydrate it before I add it? Or just pour it in dry and let the juices hydrate it?

  • The quantity of spice seems high to me. I’m a girl that can handle a vindaloo but 1 tbsp of chilli and 2 tbsp of cayenne is simply too much. By half. Is this a typo? I wish I had seasoned with caution. The other flavours are divine.
