I have made vegetarian chili for years, mostly with TVP. Now that TVP has fallen from grace, new "beef" crumbles have come around worth taking a look at. This one called Beyond Meat is plant based, vegan, cholesterol free, soy free, non GMO, Kosher and certified gluten free, AND 11g of protein. Here is there website for other products....Beyond Meat We have also tried their Beast Burgers and liked them.
What you need and what to do:
Cut up a big onion and sauté in 2 TBLS olive oil til translucent, then add:
1 chopped up green pepper
1 chopped up red pepper
1 package of Beyond Beef-Free Crumbles
1 can black beans or kidney beans
1 28 oz can of tomato sauce +1/2 can water (add the water only if you think you want it thinner)
4-oz can of chopped mild green chilies
1 hefty tsp of cumin to taste
1 tsp oregano taste
1 tsp chili powder to taste
1 tsp garlic powder to taste
Cool til the crumbles are thawed and hot and correct spices if needed.
Top with chopped fresh cilantro, and optional would be cheese, tortillas, and Greek yogurt.
