I'm not a vegan but I do love a good black bean chili and I usually make my chili meatless anyway. This has a lot of flavor. Very southwestern style.

COMMENT:
I agree with "Darkmoonlord" this shouldn't be called "Vegan" and then give the option to add cheese ... Either the title needs to change or the cheese needs to be eliminated as a possible ingredient ... : )

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
Vegans *probably* know they can use vegan cheese in this recipe, and I assume that is what the poster used in order to call this vegan.

COMMENT:
darkmoonlord, it's vegan without the cheddar cheese. It says "if desired" after grated cheddar is listed. You don't have to add it.

YUM! I'm a novice cook & this was perfect for me to make for my husband. I added about 1/2 lb of cooked, drained, (& spiced to taste) ground beef, but it would have been just as good w/out the meat. *don't add the beef until the end

One problem I had was that I used uncooked beans. You should use canned beans like the recipe implies. Or, if you use uncooked bagged beans like I did, be sure to soak them overnight & THEN BOIL THEM until they are soft (maybe 3 hours?). I am new to cooking & didn't boil them before I put them in the crockpot. They never really got as soft as they should have been.

I recommend jalepino/mexican cornbread with the chili...the combo was yummy (& we had great leftovers for days)!

BRAVO

Tried this, it's great. I'm not even a vegetarian. I served it with rice, would also be great with fresh bread. I like spicy, so I also added hot sauce.
