Easy Hearty Delicious Mango Chili {Vegetarian}

*I first published this post on Oct 17th. 2017. It has since been updated and is being reposted today.

This mango chili is a robust, hearty, delicious, vegetarian chili recipe. It is packed with flavor, and it has been a favorite with vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

And, recently, this mango chili recipe made it into the Seriously Good Chili Cookbook by Brian Baumgartner (from The Office) and Fox Chapel Publishing.

This plant-based recipe is also packed with only 16 wholesome ingredients.

What are the ingredients needed to make this Mango Chili?

The 16 ingredients needed are:

  1. An onion
  2. Fresh garlic cloves
  3. Carrots
  4. Celery
  5. Red bell pepper
  6. A ripe mango
  7. Canned fire-roasted tomatoes
  8. Cumin
  9. Coriander
  10. Smoked paprika
  11. Vegetable stock
  12. Tomato paste
  13. Apple cider vinegar
  14. Kidney beans
  15. Black beans
  16. Cilantro

The key to maximizing the flavor in this recipe is to sauté the onions until they are golden and caramelized a bit. This usually takes me about 20 – 25 minutes or so.

After that, simply add in the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, and boom – you have a scrumptious, satisfying, and nutritious bowl of chili to enjoy!

This week, summer seems to be lifting its hold on Atlanta. This week, the weather forecast doesn’t seem to have any of those 90+ degree days. Those days when the humidity is so high that sweat trickles down your back even when you are just standing there, in the shade, with a limoncello popsicle in hand.

Which leaves me a bit blue. Because, I do so love those steamy, sweaty, summer days down here in the south.

After that confession, I bet you’re thinking I’m a tad bit batty.
And, you might be right…

But, y’all, I won’t be blue for long because the FOODS of fall are coming!

I cannot wait to dig into those fall foods that I have neglected to enjoy this summer… foods like rich and crusty pies, scrumptious chocolate and cookie butter bakes, luscious baked dips, mouthwatering pumpkin cakes, creamy and indulgent soups, and hearty chili like this Easy Spicy Sweet Vegetarian Mango Chili.

Now, you might be thinking I’m battier than I was a few sentences ago by using “vegetarian” and “hearty” in one sentence along with chili. But, y’all have got to try this to see how hearty this Mango Chili really is.

When I stopped by Sprouts to pick up all the ingredients for this chili, I also picked up a baguette. My daughter simply LOVES the baked bread in the Sprouts Bakery Section, and so I figured she would love to have a baguette to sop up the last dredges of this chili.

But, after she almost licked the bowl clean, she put half of her baguette pieces away as she said she was just too full after eating a bowl of this Easy Vegetarian Mango Chili that was only topped with cilantro.

Not only is the heartiness of this Easy Vegetarian Mango Chili amped up with hearty beans, veggies, and fruit, but its flavor is amped up with Simply Organic’s cumin, coriander, and paprika!

And the best part is, if you happen to have leftovers, this chili just seems to get better with age… quite like Milo Ventimiglia from This is Us!

Oh yes, baguette would be yummy with this chili to get every last bit of deliciousness from the bowl!! I adore sweet and savoury combos so this one is right up my alley! With cooler temps lately, I can't wait to give this one a try, Shashi. :)

Oh this sounds fantastic! I remember when you shared this one before, so I'm glad you brought it back from the archives. I've never added mango to chili, but I do like a little sweetness in chili sometimes - we make one with maple syrup that I absolutely love! I'll have to try this one soon as the nights are starting to cool off here in the mountains!
