Veggie Chili

When I first told Tom we are having veggie chili for dinner he laughed! Can you blame him?Chili is meat! Well not this one. This recipe is vegan, but so rich and flavorful, we had to fill our plates twice. I choose to top with avocado, coriander and tortilla chips, but you can go ahead with cream and cheese if that`t what you love.
