While beans are the basis for any good vegetarian chili, sometimes you just want a little bit more oomph in your bowl. Here, we’re using seitan to lend extra heartiness to this dish. Seasoned with chorizo spices, the wheat-based protein has smoky, sultry flavor built right in. Served on top a bed of white rice and garnished with shreds of melty cheese, this chili is comfort food at its finest.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.
