    Vegetarian Chili Recipe: Drain beans and rinse well. Add all ingredients to a large pot, cover, and bring to a boil. (If desired, you can sauté the onion in a little oil first, but it's not required.) Once boiling, turn heat to low and cook--uncovered--until the carrots are tender and chili has thickened. Add garnishes and hot sauce if desired. This recipe freezes well. If you try it, be sure to leave a comment or rate it below!
