Sincerely Shans Chili Recipe


NOTE: For this recipe I used a crockpot. If you do not have a crockpot, you can cook this recipe on the stove in a deep dish pan or a medium sized pot.

  1. Chop onions into dices

  2. Break apart the beef-less grounds

  3. In a sauce pan heat olive oil and add the meat-less grounds and onions.

  4. Season the beef-less grounds with salt, pepper, garlic, and oregano.

  5. Cook until the onions become translucent.

  6. Remove beef mixture from pan. Add to crockpot.

  7. Combine all remaining ingredients into crockpot. Feel free to play with the ratios if you want more of a particular flavor or ingredient.

  8. Stir everything together and set on high to cook for 4 hours (or cook for 6 hours on low.) If you use a pot to make this recipe, cook it on medium-low for 30 minutes.

  9. Top with vegan shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream! Enjoy!
