Vegan Chili Verde

Vegan Chili Verde, another peak into the Veganomicon gets us this delicious dish that is perfect for feeding a large group. All it takes is a little prep and patience. Although this dish calls for jalapeños, it is well balanced with the remaining ingredients to ensure it is not very spicy. However, you may leave out the jalapeño (and cilantro if desired) or reduce the quantity if you’re sensitive to heat. Try serving it with the Jalapeño Cornbread!
