Organic Vegetarian Chili at Trader Joe’s


This Trader Joe’s chili replaces the old TJs vegetarian chili and is a new addition to the soup and chili aisle. How would everyone compare the taste and texture of this to other vegetarian chilis they’ve had? This is a pretty good value at $2.29 considering what other groceries charge for vegetarian chili like Amy’s Organic at Whole Foods. I’d love to hear what everyone puts in this chili as sides and toppings, especially for a vegetarian meal! And if you can’t make it out to TJs, give these items a try…..

Trader Joe’s chili review

8 thoughts on “Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Chili, with Red Beans and Onion

  1. I bought TJ’s organic veg chili for years…the one in the orange can. Had soy protein.

    I was excited when the chili green can came out after the orange can disappeared for quite awhile. However, the protein part – forget if it is sunflower or some other protein – was very disappointing in terms of the flavor I remember from the original orange can.

    I bought two cans of the new green can and returned one. The TJ folks were great when I stated I was disappointed with the new version. They gave me a credit for the two cans I bought.

    The old orange can TJ’s chili was basically Amy’s chili at probably half the price. Great value. However, the new green can is a total disappointment flavor-wise.

  2. The green label TJ’s vegetarian chili is back! (5/18/2022 in SoCal) I was crushed when the previous version became unavailable last year. The 2021 version was made with sunflower protein, but since Ukraine is the source of more than 50% of the world’s commercial sunflower supply, that recipe became difficult to produce. The 2022 recipe uses pea protein as it’s protein source. There are minor adjustments to the nutritional numbers, but the taste is pretty much as I remember it. This time, I will make sure that I’ve got a decent inventory at home for the inevitable TJ’s inventory hiccups.

    Thanks for bringing it back!

  3. I was also glad to see the Veg Chili back, but it has very chewy pea protein in it, which I did not enjoy. I will be asking for my money back and go back to Nally’s veg chili.

  4. Why fix something that wasn’t broke?? The old orange label vegetarian chili was hands down the best chili! The new one (green label), not even close, such a disappointment.

  5. I’m allergic to soy, so I love the new recipe with pea protein. I haven’t been able to find a soy free veg chili, so finding that TJ’s changed the recipe was a happy day. The pea protein is a bit chewy, but the flavor is great and love how limited the ingredient list is.

  6. It’s so SO gross. I didn’t realize the can color had changed since it’s been a while since I’ve been in the US and shopped at TJ’s. I guess I had a Mandela Effect moment and bought the *new* green can vegetarian chili not realizing it was any different in appearance. OH NO WAY. It’s so SO bad. Watery, chewy gross protein, nearly completely flavorless.

    What a shame.

  7. I just got some of this from my church’s foodbank to try. Pretty good base…but to do have to spice it up somewhat. I added chili powder and chili flakes, along with some salt. Oh…and i dumped in a handful of cut up chicken. Very good. In 2 weeks im going to a football party and this will be an excellent shortcut to my slowmade chili. Just have to spice it up a litlle and add meat. Maybe that deer I have in the freezer.
