i couldn't fit everything in my crock pot, so only used 1 pkg of the fake ground meat. and i misread the instructions - didn't realize i need THREE 28 oz cans of tomatos... but i rustled some up. i used one can with mild green chilies. that added a little more fire.
used pinto beans instead of garbanzo.
i was skeptical with all of the draining of the canned goods, but you need to! i should have drained a little more aggressively as mine had a more watery consistency than anticipated (and even without the extra 12oz of meat substitute I boiled over), but it tasted lovely!
i cooked on low for 8 hours.
