This recipe is easy and very flavorful. The TVP is a great alternative to ground beef, tastes and feels just like it!

I love this chili! It has the consistency of crumbled meat but tastes so much better! My husband is a fairly big meat eater, I am not, he loved it and I may turn him into a vegetarian yet! lol. Thanks so much for this product and the wonderful recipes, I can't wait to try more.

Made this for a pot luck supper, and it was GONE
Only change: reduced cayenne to 1/4 tsp. and added 1 tblsp chiipotle chilis in adobo sauce.**
** I remove everything from the jar and mash it together, then measure it by tblsp. and put it in 5 or 6 snack bags - freeze.

Nobody knew it wasn't beef - men loved it, very hearty; can be served with corn muffins. This will be served often!

I am just now learning about TVP and how to use it. This recipe was super easy and made great chili. It was a crowd pleaser for a group of meat eaters. I have added this to recipes that I will make again and again.

Added a coarsely-grated carrot and a medium zucchini, chopped, before cooking vegetables in oil. Served over baked potato. Delicious!!
