A note from Sam Moorman from @bestofvegan

I love comfort food–and since going vegan 2 years ago, I've always been on the lookout for plant-based and vegan options to help my transition without feeling major fomo. After trying just about all of the vegan chicken options, I gotta say Daring plant-based pieces win by a landslide. That’s what inspired me to make this hearty and comforting Green Chili Stew–with smoky hatch green chilis (a southwestern staple) and Original Daring Pieces. It’s like a giant hug from Denver in a bowl.


Step 1

In a deep pan, heat the stove to medium-high heat.

Step 3

Add in the rest of the ingredients to the pan (except the veggie broth and rice) and sauté until the veggies soften.

Step 4

Pour in some veggie broth, add in the rice and stir. Simmer with the lid on at low to medium heat for about 10-12 minutes.

Serve in bowls and optionally garnish with fresh sliced avocado, vegan sour cream, crispy rolled tortillas, sliced lime, red pepper flakes, jalapeños and radishes.
