It’s always important to have just as many meat-free options at a party as it meat options, or one that can easily accommodate vegans if you set aside a portion of the finished dish before adding any cheese. Take away the tortillas and you’ve just helped out someone with a gluten allergy.

And just because it’s meat-free, doesn’t mean this chili is lacking in testosterone for a football party. Poblanos are tricky peppers. Most of the time they can be somewhat mild, but sometimes, BAM! Right in the kisser. This chili had everyone reaching for extra sour cream to take the edge off of heat.
