This vegetarian chili, like most chilies, tastes best the day after it is made. Refrigerate chili in covered pot overnight and when ready to serve, heat chili to boil over low heat, stirring constantly, then serve immediately when chili is hot. If spicier chili is preferred, increase the ground cayenne red pepper to 1 teaspoon and increase the chili powder to 7 teaspoons. If sweeter chili is preferred, increase SPlenda Granular to 2/3 cup.


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup shopped onion

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cayenne red pepper
