Question by Jacob's Mommy (Plus One): Vegetarian Chili? Recipes, tips...?
I am making chili for about 30 guys, and one is a vegetarian so I am going to make him his own small pot of chili. I was wondering if anyone has used the Morningstar Ffarms ground crumbles before and how they tasted? Or if anyone has a really good recipe for vegetarian chili I would appreciate it.

1 medium yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 (14-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
1 can light beer
1 teaspoon salt
1 (8-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 (8-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (8-ounce) cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
Heat oil in large pot. Add onions, green pepper and garlic. Saute until onions are soft. Add carrots and cover for 2 minutes. Add the zucchini, squash, oregano, cumin and chili powder and saute for another 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, beer and salt. Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, lightly covered. Add the chickpeas, black beans and pinto beans and heat through until done and tender to taste. Serve with your choice of garnishes: chopped onions, cilantro, cheddar cheese, or sour cream.
