Vegetarian Chili Con Carne

 
Vegetarian Chili Con Carne

Instead of baking in the oven, I cooked it in a skillet. Browned the onions with a bit olive oil and garlic first, next browned carrots and celeries; then added remaining ingredients, brought to a boil, and simmered for about 30 minutes. Very tasty and filling, I had it with a few warm corn tortillas. Yum!

This vegetarian chili was so tasty, didn't have green beans, so used celery instead.

Instead of baking in the oven, I cooked it in a skillet. Browned the onions with a bit olive oil and garlic first, next browned carrots and celeries; then added remaining ingredients, brought to a boil, and simmered for about 30 minutes.

Very tasty and filling, I had it with a few warm corn tortillas. Yum!

How can it be "chili con carne" if it's vegetarian? Con carne is Spanish for "with meat".
