Vegetarian Cincinnati Chili

Here's a meatless version of a tradional dish in Cincinnati, where chili lovers order their chili by numbers. Serve it over cooked spaghetti for 2-way chili or topped with shredded cheese for 3-way chili. Topping it with chopped raw onions makes it 4-way, while a sprinkling of extra beans takes it to 5-way. We show our chili as 3-way since onions and beans are already part of this meatless version.
