  • Add a portion of a can of chipotles or just a little of the sauce for more heat.
  • Add vegan or conventional cheese, vegan or traditional sour cream, scallions, jalapeño slices, or anything else that pleases you on top.
  • You may add more cheese, shredded lettuce, and other toppings to the chili to make it into a burrito filling.
  • Add some shredded chicken right after it’s prepared or when you have leftovers if you’re a fan of chicken. It’s a fantastic combination!
  • I have a fantastic Lentil Bolognese that tastes like vegetarian chili—only made with lentils. The same strength and wonderful taste. So tasty it doesn’t even require pasta! Give it a try without a doubt!
