REVIEW: 2 star recipe rating
This was my first attempt at vegetarian chili, and I am a big chili fan. While the recipe definitely has potential, I thought the cumin was overpowering.. 2 teaspoons rather than tablespoons would be plenty. Also, two jalapenos were too many.. one would be better. Missed the use of chili powder in a chili recipe, recommend adding at least a tablespoon. Finally, I always add a bottle of beer to my chili, that is just a suggestion. :)

I gotta say this was very yummy. Nothing about this chili was sweet at all. It was a big hit for my football party with both the vegetarians and non vegetarians and it had just the right amount of kick to it! Loved it.

Used this recipe as the only Vegetarian chili in a company cook-off. Won second place out of 10! All proceeds went to American Cancer Society. Was a major hit. Didn't find it sweet, it had a great bite! I am not a meatless chili fan, but this was amazing! Highly recommended.

This smelled wonderful, but it ended up being a bit on the sweet side. I'd cut the carrots. I cooked it in my solar oven and that works great. I'm thinking maybe a little vinegar would or green salsa would offset the sweetness. I haven't given up on the recipe.
