Step Two: Assemble the Chili

Since this is made in one pot, the preparation of this dish is super simple. We’re just going to layer the flavors.

Heat the oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, jalapeño, poblano and dry seasonings. Cook down for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the vegan cream cheese and stir until it is melted and bubbly. Pour in the salsa verde, broth & chickpeas and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, partially cover and lower heat. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove the lid and add the lime juice & cilantro. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

  • non-dairy yogurt
  • cilantro

Ladle the chili into bowls and add as many toppings as your heart desires (or your bowl can hold). The leftovers can be reheated on the stove or in the microwave. You can also pop this in the freezer for easy meals later on!

Notes

  • Use more or less broth depending on how thick you want it. The longer you can cook this down the thicker it will get.
  • I made my tortilla chips in the air fryer. To make them, cut corn tortillas into quarters, layer them in the air fryer basket, spray with oil and cook at 370 for 8-10 minutes, or until crispy – flipping every few minutes. Remove from the air fryer and sprinkle with salt.
