Smoky Spicy Chickpea Chili Mac

EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S CHICKPEA CHILI MAC is smokey and spicy.  Make it all in one pot!  Easy and delicious.


1 yellow onion finely chopped

1 carrot chopped

1 red bell pepper chopped

1 smoked jalapeno pepper (or regular jalapeno chopped plus 1 tablespoon liquid smoke)

2 Tablespoons chili powder

1 Tablespoon smoked paprika

1 Tablespoon Wildtree garlic galore

2 Tablespoons tomato paste

15 oz can of plain tomato sauce

1 cup of your favorite beer  (or vegetable broth)

3 cups water

3 cups small raw pasta (like shells or elbows)

1 15 oz can drained chickpeas

1/4th cup of nutritional yeast

1/4 cup of maple syrup

For garnish when serving… lime wedge and chopped cilantro


In a large deep dish skillet cook veggies (onion, carrot, and  jalapeno and red pepper) in a dry pan until softening… if sticking add a little of the beer/broth.  Then add all the seasonings and stir for a minute or two.  Then add the tomato paste and stir for a minute or two.  Then add the remainder of the ingredients, stir and simmer 10-12 minutes stirring frequently until the pasta is tender.  You may want to cover it between stirring to cook the pasta better.

Serve with lime wedge, cilantro, more jalapenos and tortilla chips if you like… YUM
