VeganMoFo: Chili sin Carne al Mole



Democrats. Republicans. Almost everybody likes chili. And yes, I've resorted to wind-up toys in an attempt to maintain my sense of humor this political season. We stage races for the donkey and elephant, and the donkey kicks butt every time.

This chili from Vegan with a Vengeance combines seitan, pintos, and red bell pepper, smothered in a complex mole sauce. It is totally amazing. I'm in a chili rut because I can't bring myself to make any other version.


I can't resist a close up of the toys. See you Monday for more VeganMoFo!

  2. I love chili, especially chunky chili!

    That donkey with his head high and proud looks so much more confident than the elephant with his head hung low.

    hmmmmm....

  11. I love that chili recipe from Vcon, and your version looks delish - I haven't made chili all summer...might be an idea. I love the wind up political mascots. Power to the donkeys!

  14. I really want to try this recipe. Can you help me a little with the ingredients? The recipe calls for "a can of whole peeled tomatoes in sauce"...All I could find at the store is canned whole peeled tomatoes but not in sauce, just in water. So I bought tomato sauce to put the tomatoes in?? How did you do this when you made the recipe. Help please! Thanks :)

  15. Lola, when I made it, I used a can of whole tomatoes- they come in a thin juice. I think this should work fine, that you don't need to add sauce. Or, the same amount of canned diced tomatoes, undrained, should work fine too. Hope you enjoy the chili!
