AFC Open-Face Artichoke Chili Kaiser Rolls


SWEET CHILI. That’s what Steve always says he wants. No heat except lots of black pepper. He’s that kind of guy – black pepper with everything and lots of it!

This chili smokes without the heat!! Yeah, we upscaled this simple chili, adding a French Italian Scottish twinge just to excite the Spanish! The German part is the ride! You know, the boat! Substitute the English Muffin if you like! Both work great!

Makes 6 cups


2 T. extra virgin olive oil

12 oz. pkg. Lightlife SMART GROUND meatless crumbles, thawed

1-2 t. liquid smoke

1 t. ground coriander

1 t. smoked paprika

salt and pepper to taste

16 oz. can pinto beans including liquid from can – I used Bush’s brand

16 oz. jar salsa – I used Muir Glen brand

2, 7 oz. jars grilled artichokes, including oil in jars – I used Napoleon brand – discard stiff petals

8-10 med. peeled garlic cloves, chopped

chopped fresh cilantro as desired – for chili plus topping


nondairy parmesan cheese – I used Follow Your Heart brand (optional topping)

kaiser rolls, cut in half and lightly toasted

1- In large saucepan, over medium heat, melt olive oil.

2- Add meatless crumbles and liquid smoke. Break apart block of crumbles, stirring into oil. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring up from bottom to prevent burning.

3- Add remaining CHILI INGREDIENTS up to and including cilantro, stirring after each addition.

4- Lower heat and cook 15-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

To serve: Place toasted half of kaiser roll spread with margarine on plate.

Top with 1 cup chili.

Sprinkle with vegan parmesan cheese.

Top with chopped cilantro.

Notes: It’s not easy to find an English Muffin free of animal products, namely milk. Guess the British haven’t gotten around to demanding it.
