This chili, full of fiber and antioxidants, is hearty and healthy.

Guideposts: A large serving dish filled with vegetarian chili

A man’s relationship with his chili recipe is a serious matter. But I’m willing to share my vegetarian chili with anyone. The veggies and spices remind me of a fall farmer’s market. So dig in! Nothing should stand between a man and his chili.


2 Tbsp. olive oil 2 32-oz. cans black beans
1 large white onion, chopped 1 16-oz. can golden corn
1 bulb garlic, finely chopped 1 c. vegetable stock
1 large red bell pepper, chopped ½ bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
3 packages baby bella mushrooms, washed
and coarsely chopped
¼ c. of your favorite hot sauce
2 heaping Tbsp. chili powder
1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes 2 heaping tsp. cumin
1 16-oz. can lentils 2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 16-oz. can kidney beans 2 Tbsp. honey
