Here's the other kind of chili that I made. The recipe comes from the FatFree Vegan Kitchen.
I did a few things differently than the original recipe.
First of all, instead of dirtying a second pan, I caramelized the onions in the soup pot prior to adding the other ingredients. Also, I didn't bother with using the masa harina to thicken the chili. Instead, I just mashed some of the beans in the pot with a large spoon. The mashed beans really helped "thickify" things.
If you don't like things too spicy, take it easy with the jalapeno, or skip it all together.
For the carnivores in your life, you can add some cooked chicken to the recipe.
