It is raining again in Southern California. This has been one of the wettest winters on record but no one is complaining! We need the moisture, albeit maybe not this much, to help with the years-long drought.
I ran to the Whole Foods before the torrential downpours started and gathered up some ingredients for some Chili.
This recipe only takes about 10 minutes to prepare and 90 minutes to cook.
Serve it with a handful of tortilla chips or even some oven-baked polenta.
I am so thankful to live in Southern California. Beyond the beautiful weather and beaches is how the Spanish influence has helped to shape the state.
In addition to their dedication to family and friends the Mexican culture also introduced us to amazing foods. Thanks to Soyrizo and avocados, veganizing Mexican favorites is simple.
As a note there are varying degrees of spiciness in different brands of Soyrizo. I have found the best and mildest to be from El Burrito. In addition to being Vegan it is also Organic, Gluten Free, Non-GMO and contains no preservatives.

OK, this recipe may look a little advanced but it is actually quite simple. It has quite a few steps but the outcome is positively delicious.
To make the recipe Gluten-Free, try substituting Soyrizo or Tempeh in place of the Chorizo Seitan.
If you don’t have any Herbes de Provence on hand, you can substitute a mixture basil, oregano and thyme.
