Meatless Monday Super Chili

by Jill Dalton

This is the first recipe in the Meatless Mondays series and you are going to love it. I call it Super Chili because it has red cabbage and goji berries in it. You will never miss the meat because this chili is loaded with all kinds of chewable tasty goodness! You can top it with fresh chives, jalapeños, or even crunched up corn chips. YUM.

Crunched up corn chips?

Rachel March 13, 2018 - 1:08 pm

I made this chili last night in my instant pot. 7 min. Natural release. I added the corn after the chili was done cooking. I also added about 2 T chili powder. Very delicious recipe. I loved it. Thank you for sharing!!

If too thick, would adding can it tomato sauce and possibly water work to thin? Would seasonings need adjusted? Or maybe there is a better way? Thank you in advance.

Yes, you can add tomato sauce or vegetable broth or water. Adding more seasoning is just up to your own taste. =)

Hi Jill! To save time can I use frozen corn? Are your goji berries dried?

In the video you did not put in the tomato paste as noted in the recipe. we used corn and some fall green cabbage from our garden and included the tomato paste. All of our guests enjoyed the soup! It’s the best chili I’ve had in a long time!
