Oumph! Chili Sin Carne
Won't miss the meat in this vegan chili. | Oumph!

Oumph! Chili Sin Carne

A simple classic chili without meat, but with loads of flavor. Don't skimp on the cumin, dried peppers, and dried herbs.

This is a meat-free version of a classic chili spiced with lots of peppers: jalapeños, chipotle, cayenne, and bell peppers. Feel free to adjust the spice-level  based on your own taste preferences. Note that the jalapeños go into the chili whole!
