Veggie Chili mmm mmmm Good!!


I am super picky about chili.  It's something that I love when it's done right, but finding that just right recipe doesn't always happen.  I think chili needs to be a perfect mixture of salty sweet if that makes sense.  Chili is a savory dish, but I like when it has a hint of sweetness....not too much.  This chili recipe came about very serendipitously.  I bought a bunch of ingredients to make chili, got home, and realized I didn't have chili powder.  Typical Stephanie moment...lol  Rummaging through my spice cabinet I found a package of organic vegetarian seasoning from whole foods.  It did the trick.  Best chili I ever made.  I served it with some cornbread, and garnished it with some Goat Gouda Cheese.  Soooooo good....read on for the recipe.
