A meat-free crowd pleaser, your guests can enjoy a bowl of warming delight in about 1 1/2 hours. This smoky, spicy vegetarian chili gets a ton of flavor from roasting the vegetables before adding liquid ingredients, and a serious kick of heat from chipotle chilis en adobo sauce. Take the spice down by using less of the chilis or, if you have a crowd of various ages and heat-tolerance, remove the chiles, puree a bit, and serve on the side for the brave to stir into their bowl. Cilantro is a fantastic bright herb with a cooling taste but doesn't taste good to some people. Serve it on the side to let folks choose for themselves.
