Quick and Easy Dairy-free Chili

  • 1 can of chili beans 
  • 1 can of red kidney beans (rinsed)
  • 1 can of black beans (rinsed)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 c beef or chicken broth
  • 3/4 c. nutritional yeast
  • 1 t. agave
  • 1 t. taco seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • optional- 2 c. of cooked ground beef
  1. Pour all the ingredients into a pot and heat over medium heat for about 10 mins to let all the flavors combine.
  2. Serve with chips and dairy alternative (I used Daiya) cheddar cheese. 

* Just as an FYI all the beans i buy are from Wal-mart. Their chili beans does have a tiny bit of soy so beware of that if you choose to use it.*

Tasty looking right!?!?!

Here's a close up.... mmmm!

  • 1 box Cinnamon Chex
  • 1box rice or corn Chex
  • 2-3 pkg. marshmellows
  • 1/4 c. butter or butter alt.
  • 2t. vanilla
  • 2t cinnamon
  1.  In a large pot melt the butter and marshmellows until they are completely smooth, on medium heat.
  2. Remove from heat and add the cinnamon and vanilla to mixture. It should look like this...
  3.    In a separate bowl pour both kinds of chex and stir them together.
  4.    Pour mixture onto a greased cookie sheet.
  5.    Take a sandwich bag and spray it with cooking spray. Use it as a glove for your     hand and press the chex until it is flat and even all around.
  6.   Allow to cool and then serve.

*You may want to alter the marshmallow to chex recipe depending on your taste. My pictures are 1and 3/4 boxes of chex and 2 and 1/2 bags of marshmellos.)*
