    Default Vegetarian chili recipe

    I made this chili the other day and decide to try dehydrating it in my air fryer. I tore up yellow corn tortillas and added them before dehydrating. Stale cornbread would work too.

    Steep 9 large chilis(I like a mix of california, new mexico, and guajillo) in hot water for 45 minutes. Roughly chop 1 large sweet potato, 1 onion, and 2 poblano peppers. Toss veggies with oil, salt, and pepper. Roast at 375 for 1 hour, tossing every 20 minutes. When peppers are hydrated, combine oil, garlic, salt, unsweetened cocoa powder, and cumin seeds in a blender. Blend to paste then add the water from hydrated peppers and blend again. Strain liquids in to a large pot. Throw solids away. Add 2 cups veggie stock, 28oz canned tomatoes, 1 cinnamon stick, and 2 bay leaves to pot. Bring to a low simmer, cover and cook for and hour. Add roasted veggies, and beans of your choice. I used garbanzo, northern, and pinto beans. Simmer low and covered for a couple of hours. If you really like that cocoa taste, use food grade cocoa butter instead of cooking oil.

    I dehydrated at 150 for 8 hours.

    TU DP. Now, I know you can use an air fryer to dehydrate. I dont have one but have access to one. Liked the cinnamon addition to chili! Isn't it a tasty addition to chili? Also appreciated the rec "use food grade cocoa butter instead of cooking oil." Did the substitution result in a slight cocoa flavor or fattiness mouth feel to the chili?

    The cocoa butter fat definitely helps to achieve a stewy consistency. Emulsifying your chili paste and liquids in a blender also helps.

    Another trick to getting a richer consistency to veggie chili is adding creamy peanut butter. 1 tablespoon is enough for a large pot and you won't notice any change in taste.

    Yeah, I'm one of those guys as well - taking easy path, using whatever I can get online or in shops and just dehydrate it.
