Vegetarian chili is the perfect weeknight meal

You know what I dislike about Monday? Everything. It seems to be the busiest day of the week and the one with the longest to do list. It also seems to be the day I am MOST tired! This vegetarian crockpot chili recipe was my solution to both of these problems.

I literally did nothing but open cans, jars, and packages and dump it into a crockpot. Okay, there was some onion chopping and garlic mincing but that is really about it. There was nothing to pre-cook and since I put it in the crockpot, I just ignored it for 5 hours while it simmered and made my house smell good. Doesn’t it look delicious?

How do you make chili vegetarian?

I chose to add Boca Veggie Crumbles to this vegetarian crockpot chili recipe. Usually, I really like the texture of ground beef along with the beans in my chili. I decided to see how the meat substitute tasted in it and I was pleasantly surprised.

Honestly, it had the exact texture of ground beef and tasted delicious. You could leave the veggie crumbles out and just add another can of beans or use a pound of cooked ground beef if you aren’t looking for a vegetarian chili recipe.

The heat from this recipe comes from the jar of salsa you will add to the rest of the ingredients. If you prefer a mild chili, choose a mild salsa. I used a hot salsa and it definitely had a nice kick to it!

It is a delicious meatless dinner recipe that is quick and easy to make!  Bring it to your next tailgate party for a vegetarian option for fellow football fans.
