Marty’s Bean Burger Chili
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 7 hours
this was the worst new recipe I have ever tried from toh. Tasteless. The amount of chili powder used was overpowering. A big waste of ingredients that could have been used to make a really good chili. Hate to say it but I threw the whole mess in the garbage. Don't like being so harsh but it was such a waste.
An Ok recipe, but not one that really excited us. It is healthy, but just not enough flavor for us.
We are chili lovers and this one is GOOD! I made 2 changes- not wanting to make a trip to the store I used what I had on hand--that is, hamburger instead of black bean burgers. I realize this completely negates this being a vegetarian dish but the men in my family are carnivores anyway. I also added a can of tomato sauce (or tomato juice would also work) to make it "soupier." The chili was very thick--almost casserole-like. I also added a little more hot sauce and I have to say this is a super delicious chili. It will be an easy weekday fix.
This was a great alternative to the classic meatless chili! I used beans that I had on hand - one can of undrained pinto beans and one can of drained cannelli beans in place of the kidney and garbanzo beans respectively, and it still turned out delicious. Definitely not too spicy - which makes this easy to customize by the bowlful!
