Sometimes you want chili, and you want it fast. Those are the times you’ll be thanking your lucky stars that I shared my recipe for The Easiest Vegan Chili. Ever. with you!

You’re welcome.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I did. I hiked 10 miles on Saturday at Staunton State Park, climbing up Lion’s Head to the Elk Falls Overlook. Pretty, right?

I also met this guy. He bit me. He actually bit me!

I thought he was a chipmunk, but I learned he was actually a Gold-Mantled Ground Squirrel. I also learned he has sharp little teeth. The moral of the story is, of course, don’t try to pet the wildlife.

If I had just made this chili that morning it would’ve made sense that he smelled all that deliciousness on me and just wanted a taste! But no, I actually made this a few weeks ago, so we’ll just stick with the theory that it was my own damn fault 🙂

This chili though? Delicious! It’s a bit spicy, and is made with chili beans and my very own seitan. It’s hearty and absolutely perfect for the chillier weather we’re starting to have!

    I’m not a fan of chili but this looks AH-MAZING. Mark loves spicy food so I’m sure he’ll love this!

    That definitely looks like a chipmunk. I hope you’re OK after getting bitten!
