Tasty Tuesday! Vegetarian Chili Recipe; Quick, easy, and YUM!

Posted by Mrs Money on October 21st, 2008


spe.jpgSince I’ve started cooking more at home, I’ve been looking for recipes that are easy to make, cheap, and taste great!  I’ve been making a lot of soups and chilis and dishes with beans and lentils.  One of my favorite things to make is a vegetarian chili.  I’m sure you could add meat to this if you like, but I think the beauty of this dish is that it tastes amazing without it!  I was skeptical at first, but after I made it I am hooked.


  • 2 (15 ounce) cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can yellow hominy, drained [I would add more hominy, it is delicious!]
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 2 small zucchini, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

In a large kettle or Dutch oven, combine the first 15 ingredients; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-35 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. 

That’s it!  It is so simple and so tasty.

  1. Sounds great… and seriously couldn’t be simpler. I have another recipe that uses zucchini and I always have a zuc or two left over. So I might have to give this one a try.

    Thanks, Ashley! I actually left out the zucchini. I didn’t have any. 🙂

    This looks like a yummy recipe. I am not sure my kids will like it but it’s worth giving it a shot. They love Chili! And, I love the idea of saving money by not adding meat.
