  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • 15oz can pinto beans, drained & rinsed
  • 15oz can kidney beans
  • ½ 15oz can no fat refried beans
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeños & juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Masa Harina corn flour
  • 2 Tablespoons hot water


  1. Chop onions, peppers, and garlic into a large soup pot
  2. Saute in ⅓ cup of veggie broth until translucent
  3. Add in seitan and continue to stir for a few minutes
  4. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, and remaining broth
  5. Add in spices and stir until mixed well
  6. Add all the beans and jalapeños and stir
  7. Mix the Corn Flour with the hot water and stir into pot
  8. Give the chili one more good stir and bring it to a slow boil.
  9. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about an hour.


If you’re gluten intolerant, you can substitute an 8oz package of mushrooms for the seitan. Or leave it out entirely.
