Ultimate Vegan Chili

This chili is made with a base of seitan and mushrooms for a rich, thick dish that is, for lack of a better word, meaty!

In lieu of chili beans such as Bush’s Best Chili Beans, you can substitute or 1 can each black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans, partially drained. If you like your chili three-alarm hot, add an extra chipotle chile or two.
