This looked a little "funny" to us carnivores because our TVP had not been colored, but it tasted good and went together well. We used 2 cans of kidney beans, 1 c. TVP and 1 c. water (microwaved to expand), a 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes and 2 sm cans of tomato sauce, and skipped the tabasco (we didn't have any), then seasoned to taste.

Fast, easy, and tasty! I used a black bean burger for the protein, which I heated in the oven and diced up to throw in the chili. I also used a can of chili-style diced tomatoes. It was great with some oyster crackers and shredded cheddar cheese on top! Thanks for sharing.
