This is really tasty. Like others have said, it is not really spicy, could use some hot sauce if you want it spicier. Very hearty and great way to get some veggies in.
Good chili recipe, but not spicy as the name would have you believe. I don't like carrots so I skip them and add more zucchini. I also add some chipotle chili pepper and serve it topped with sliced jalapenos and some hot sauce for more heat. I always make a double batch because it freezes so well. Good served over white rice (TX style) and with corn bread.
Didn't miss the beef at all! Standout recipe that got raves from my young adult sons. Served with it a green salad w/onion, cucumber, olives, and dried cranberries, parmesan dressing, crusty bread WOW.
This is really good - we usually make it once a week. Its not so spicy as is, but I usually chop up a jalapeno and add a little bit of ground red pepper to give it an extra kick
