Reader Recipe: Vegetarian Chili

To come up with this dish, I combined some of the ingredients from various other chili recipes with what I had in my pantry and fridge. I’m flexible when I make this; I get bi-weekly deliveries from Fresh City Farms, and whatever local veggies I receive can often be easily incorporated into the chili. I’m always looking to improve the recipe; the chipotle chilies were a recent addition (I enjoy the smoky flavour they bring). This recipe is hearty, spicy, delicious and healthy’I love it!
