  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 16 oz. seitan I used Upton’s Naturals Traditional Seitan, but my “Tastes Like Chicken” Seitan recipe works well, too, if you want to make a homemade batch.
  • 1 ½ cups diced onion
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 pound white potatoes cut into 1" cubes
  • 3 cups green chiles diced
  • 1 Tbsp. Chipotle diced, in Adobo sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. diced red bell pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro


  • Heat the oil over medium heat and sauté onions until golden.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Stir in seitan, broth, potatoes and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 40 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
  • Add the green chiles, chipotle in adobo and red bell pepper. Cook 10 to 20 minutes longer.
  • Stir in cilantro and remove from heat.
