I make many types of chili, but my wife likes this version best. It is easy, virtually fat-free, and family-friendly. It makes a big pot but freezes well. I spice up my own bowl with hot sauce, jalapenos,fresh onion, whatever.

  1. Using a large pot, saute the chopped vegetables in the olive oil until soft.
  2. Crumble in the fake meat and stir a bit.
  3. Add all of the canned stuff and stir.
  4. Add all of the seasonings and simmer for 30 minutes, adding a bit of water if you like it thinner.
  5. Taste and tweak; if you like it spicier I recommend the chipotle powder. Hot sauce will do it too.
