The easiest and most delicious 5 can vegetarian chili! Takes 30 minutes to cook and is perfect for an easy weeknight dinner!
First of all, how was your Valentine’s Day!? Mine was fabulous! The Mister and I went on a (childless) date to PF Changs, and I got flowers, chocolate, and Olaf earrings (Little J picked those out). It was perfect!
Anyway, I grew up as a vegetarian, and the thought that chili could be made without meat never even entered my mind. My mom always made chili for her and my dad, but my sister and I never ate it. Fast forward to married life when our church ward was having a chili cook-off. I found a recipe that I had never made in my recipe cards, accidentally used creamed corn instead of regular corn, and won! That recipe is now my fourth most popular post on my blog. Anyway, I realized that I liked the way my chili smelled, and decided to make it without meat for myself one night. And guess what? IT WAS DELICIOUS! And thus, this fantastic 5 can vegetarian chili recipe was born.
Now, not only is this chili vegetarian, it is also insanely easy. Open five cans, pour them in a pot, cook for at least 30 minutes, and voila! Delicious chili!
Something else I love about this recipe is that the chili has a little bit of a kick, but also sort of a sweet taste. I know it sounds kind of weird, but it’s so good! And it is amazing with a side of cornbread!
Here’s all you need to make this easy chili:
You don’t need to add any extra spices or anything, and it comes out amazing and perfect and just wonderful. I can’t believe I went so long without eating chili.
- 1 can Black Beans
- 1 can Rotel (drained)
- 2 cans Condensed Tomato Soup
- 1 can Creamed Corn
- Combine all ingredients in a pot on low. And I mean the lowest your stove will go. Any higher and it will get stuck on the bottom, even if you stir.
- Cover and stir about every ten minutes and cook for at least 30 minutes. You can cook it for longer, but it doesn't need to be.
- Serve and enjoy!
See! Super easy, super delicious, and fantastic for vegetarians. Hooray chili!
