Vegetarian Chili

Football season is upon us and for any of us who is a fan or who has a NFL fan in their lives, this means Sunday afternoons watching the games with a bunch of buddies yelling at the TV. You're going to need some quick and easy recipes to feed the hoards of football fans crashing on your couch this season and this chili dish is the perfect solution.

Vegetarian chili with onions, red peppers, carrots, celery, tomatoes, beans, chick peas and corn.
ILIOS Vegetarian Chili


2 tbsp of ILIOS vegetable oil

1 large onion (diced)

4 cloves of garlic (minced)

1-3 tbsp of chili powder

2 tbsp cumin

1 tsp oregano

1/4-2 tsp of chili flakes

2 ILIOS piquillo peppers (diced)

2 medium carrots (diced)

3 celery stalks (diced)

2 cans of ILIOS diced tomatoes

2 jars of ILIOS legumes (chick peas, white kidney beans or cranberry beans)

2 cups of ILIOS frozen corn

Salt (to taste)


  1. Heat oil in a large pot (medium-high heat). Add onion and sauté for about 3 mins. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Then add spices and mix everything together.

  2. Add peppers, carrots and celery and cook for about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and their juices and bring to a simmer. Once the chili begins to simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low.

  3. Add the beans (rinsed and drained) and corn to the pot and cook on a low simmer (lid off) for about 20-30 minutes.

  4. Serve with sour cream, cheddar cheese, nacho chips, cilantro, avocado or eat as-is. Delicious!
