Vegan Mofo #7: Chili & Food Should Taste Good Review

I have been enjoying a variety of Food Should Taste Good Chips and am loving them.   First, Food Should Taste Good has some of my favorite packaging it is simple, clean and  yet eye catching.   Food Should Taste Good makes a great variety of tortilla chips that are all natural, gluten free and lactose free, and GMO free.  Once you have picked up a bag of these flip it over and you will see that there are very few ingredients and all of the ingredients are very common and all natural.  I haven’t tried all of them yet but I have tired Multigrain, The Works!, Sweet Potato, Potato & Chive and Cinnamon all of which are delicious and I am sure the other 6 I have yet to try are just as tasty.

Great Pairings:

Mutligran and The Works! go great with savory salsas 

Potato & Chive is yummy with a nice french onion or ranch dip 

Cinnamon would go great with a fruit salsa 

Lastly the Sweet Potato is my favorite and goes amazing with chili, it is a great balance of sweet with a spicy chili.  My favorite chili recipe to go with these chips is:

Ingredients:

  • 1T canola oil
  • 1 Large yellow Onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 T of ground cumin
  • 1 T paprika
  • 1 T Chipotle Chili Powder 
  • 1T Goya Adobo
  • 1T nutritional yeast
  • 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can of brown lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1T Pure VT Maple Syrup (inspired by Happy Herbivore)
  • 1T Chalulua Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen organic sweet corn
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a heavy bottom pot heat the canola oil on high and add the onions and garlic, sautee for a minute, then turn down to med high and sautee until onions are translucent.  Add the spices (cumin-nutritional yeast) and stir together and cook for 1 min.  Add the tomatoes, beans and lentils and maple syrup.  Stir well and cook on medium for 10 minutes.  Add the hot sauce and corn and cook until heated through.  

This makes a very thick chili so if you like yours thinner then add a little vegetable broth.
