Vegetarian Super Bowl Chili

The Super Bowl is but days away. Do you know what you're bringing to the party? Why not be the hero and make something to make the vegetarian friends happy? And no one needs to tell the meat eaters that those are veggie crumbles and not beef.

Make this chili the day before and if you don't take it to a Super Bowl party you'll have the large pot full all week long for left-overs.
