    This was a great veggie chili!

    Tastes wonderful. I make this pretty frequently and no one that i’ve made it for even notices that it’s vegetarian.

    Tasty. I was a little heavier handed with spices which made this much better.

    My husband and I thought it was good but were not big on “sweet” chili. I may try again with plain potatoes.

    Made it for football Saturday as a topping over baked was a hit. Go Griz🏈

    I substituted cous cous for quinoa as that was all I had, but it turned out great!

    Amazing recipe. The Chipotle powder really does give the dish the depth that it needs. Using all the toppings listed is the perfect way to give it variety of taste, bite after bite.

    Turned out really well! I would do yam instead of sweet potatoes next time as I prefer them

    Hubby said this was the best chili he’d ever put in his mouth. I have to agree: it was OUTSTANDING. I used just one large sweet potato and one large bell pepper. I added the cheese but it didn’t really need it. The dollop of plain nonfat Greek yogurt on top was essential. Don’t leave it out. The chips finished it off, too. Will make again!
