Vegetarian Chili

OK So one of my friends asked me why I don't do vegetarian recipes. Honestly, it is because I EAT MEAT. lol I love meat and put it in everything even my mac and cheese. But I am willing to help out a friend and so here is a Vegetarian Chili. I suppose if you are a meat eater you could easily plop some burger or steak in it. LOL Now for the recipe...
