Here's a version of a kid-friendly classic that even vegetarians and vegans can enjoy. Using one of our most popular spices, Ground Cumin, this dish is full of warm, spicy and sweet flavors. Need a simpler recipe? Use our Burger Blast blend. Tempeh can be substituted by any meat or protein.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium high heat

  4. Add mushrooms, tempeh, cumin, Cool Chili, and the tomatoes
  5. Turn heat down to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes until you reach the desired thickness
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste
