Mushroom Chili

Lent is upon us so meatless dishes. How about a meatless dish that tastes like meat? That is what the mushrooms can do if properly handled with the right spices. The Fruitful Forest provided the shiitakes that the owner cultivates. I used Poppi’s chili mixture and few extra ingredients. It’s a hearty chili; add some cornbread and dinner.
