“In the spirit of the Superbowl this year, I decided to make vegan chilli cheese dogs. This chilli was made from items that I had right in the pantry and was the perfect topper the veggie dogs served in grilled buns! I actually took the time to toast whole cumin and corrriander seed, and grind them in my spice grinder, which made a REAL difference in the flavor. Another note: I made this using 1 can of black beans, but I think 2 cans would have been the perfect ratio. Use your judgement!”
