Peel, then onion into 1/4-inch pieces.Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.Roughly chop cilantro. Core, then finely chop jalapeños. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeños!)
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then bell peppers and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) jalapeños. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat. Transfer veggies to a plate.
Reheat the same pot over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then Beyond Meat® and onions. Cook, breaking up Beyond Meat® into smaller pieces, until Beyond Meat® is crispy, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Add garlic puree and Mexican Seasoning.

Add crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup (1 cup) water to the pot with Beyond Meat®. Stir to combine, then bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until chili thickens slightly, 10-12 min. (TIP: If you have time, keep it simmering on the stove for longer. Chili gets better the longer it cooks!)
