Cozy Vegan Chipotle Chili

This post may include external or affiliate links. Please see our affiliate disclaimer.

Nothing beats a snowy cold day better than a simmering pot of chili. This recipe features spicy chipotle peppers, flavorful adobo sauce, and my favorite chili ingredient — stout beer! A dark beer is always perfect for creating the rich, umami flavor that you classically find in meat-based chili recipes. No meat over here, though! This tasty dish is so easy to make (just watch the video) and perfect for your weekly meal prep!

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do! Be sure to make this recipe to fight off the cold winter weather, and when you do, don’t forget to share! Tag Sweet Pea Living and use the hashtag #sweetpealiving on Facebook or Instagram. I can’t wait to see how this one turns out for you!
