This Flavorful Vegetarian Chili is so easy to make and it pairs well with some avocado pieces and a delicious piece of cornbread. This recipe is very inexpensive and the best part is that it will taste better and better the next day. It’s perfect for meal prep and the ideal dish for cold and wintery days. I live in Connecticut and here the winters tend to be cold. I love to have a bowl of soup like my Beef Soup “Sopa de Carne de Res” Spanish Style or this flavorful vegetarian chili. 

I have two simple words to describe this recipe, Easy and Flavorful!

How to make this Chili Recipe

One of the ingredients I love the most to make my recipes is garlic. I love garlic for many reasons including is great for your health. I like to combine the garlic cloves with a pinch of salt and ½ teaspoon of black pepper and create a flavorful garlic paste. That’s what I did first.

Then,  saute 1 cup of chopped onions in a large pot over medium-low heat with 1 teaspoon of oil. and add the garlic paste and the green peppers.
