Isn’t Chili such a crowd-pleaser? I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t enjoy a hearty bowl of this stuff. Whether it’s a meaty chili or a vegetarian chili, it’s always delicious, filling, and pretty darn nutritious too!

This is a 100% vegan chili (that is until I loaded it with yogurt and cheese), and I make it in my Instant Pot which means it’s a cinch to throw together any night of the week.
