Cranberry sauce and brie grilled cheese. Yes, it was every bit as decadent as it sounds. Gotta love Thanksgiving leftovers.
Then, on Sunday I was watching Rachel Ray's Week in a Day on Food Network and she made chili. It was a special type of chili that didn't really appeal to me, but the thought of eating chili and watching football was too enticing to pass up.
I started by looking up vegetarian chili recipes since my roommate is vegetarian, my parents are trying to eat as little meat as possible and I knew I was going to have to share since it would make so much. When I looked up vegetarian chili recipes specifically, I wasn't impressed by the recipes I found. They weren't too highly rated and I didn't want to run out to buy ingredients to make a chili recipe that wasn't tested and approved by the Food.com community, so I searched regular chili recipes. This is the highest rated recipe and it calls for coffee, beer and cocoa, so naturally, I was intrigued. I swapped out the ground beef for veggie meat crumbles and added an extra can of beans and it was fantastic.
