Shirley's Vegetarian Chili
"Chili made with three different types of beans instead of ground beef, but still made like my mother used to make it." Recipe submitted by Shirley Trout of Owasso, Oklahoma.
1/4 cup textured vegetable protein
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 (15-ounce) cans dark red kidney beans
1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans
1 (15-ounce) can white beans or navy beans
- Brown onion and TVP in small amount of oil until just soft. Add chili powder stir well to blend then add tomato sauce.
- Drain and rinse beans. Add to onion mixture. (Sometimes I only use 1 can of kidney beans.)
- Chili powder can be easily adjusted to suit own tastes. Simmer until flavors are combined or it just starts to bubble.
