Does anyone here buy a veggie chili (canned, frozen, etc.) that they like and would recommend? Looking for a good quality product that is heat and serve.... not a recipe. Thanks.

This is one that I buy often. It's frozen and you get two packets (servings) per box that can be heated by microwaving or by placing in boiling water. It's very good. But are there any others available for a quick meal?

I've never had any product from Amy's that wasn't good.

Thanks Ohiogirl! I just looked on Amy's website and see that they make several canned chilis.

I'll have to see if our stores carry them.

amy's and health valley canned chilis aren't bad. my favorite pre-made kind is tabatchnik though. unfortunately, none of them hold a candle to homemade!

I agree. I will make a crockpot of it and have many meals from that one pot.

I don't like a lot of Amy's stuff. They use a certain spice I don't like. I don't know what that spice is, but I find a lot of their stuff has the same "off" flavor to me. And their frozen meals are often very high in fat and calories.

When I don't have time to make my veggie chili from scratch, I simply open up a can of pinto or black beans & open up a can of diced tomatoes, pouring both in a pot. I add TVP (textured vegetable protein). Then I add red chile powder to taste. To me that is instant vegetarian chili!

Thanks, I'm going to do that today, only with kidney beans.

I do this in the crock pot. It's easy enough to do in the AM before work, then I get to come home to a nice dinner on a cold day.

I use 2 kinds of beans, either dark and light red kidney or kidney and chili beans, chopped onion, mushrooms (canned), Morningstar Farms veggie ground, stewed tomatoes or diced with green chiles, tomato paste, and water. I season with LOTS of black pepper and hot chili powder. (I like it spicy) This makes a nice big crockpot of chili and I can have it again the following week. It's actually better the next day, so I will sometimes have leftovers on a baked potato.

Sounds great!! Do you leave the crockpot on low all day?
