I found this on the Meatless Mondays website. This recipe was a contest winner made by Wendy Edwards. I made it, it was delicious, and I thought I'd pass it along!

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.
