Meatless Chili

READY IN: 7hrs 10mins
Recipe by Goji Girl

My family loves this meal, and my husband didn't even realize the meat was 'missing' until after dinner that night when I mentioned it. I made it for my husband and I along with 3 other guys at hunting camp, and every last drop was gone! This recipe is modified (to make it meatless) from one found in Fix-It & Forget-It. Best of all, when I priced it out late 2006, it only cost $3.50 for the entire batch! If you are out all day, make it in the crock pot. Otherwise, if you forgot or need a *slightly* faster meal, let it simmer on the stove in a dutch oven for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.

made this first time and it turned out great, however i did add a few items as follows: - 4 or 5 nacho jalapeno slices finely chopped - 2 heaping teaspoons Goya "Recaito Cilantro cooking base - "Lightlife" Smart Ground veggie protein crumbles Most can't tell it's meatless and agree tastes great. Didn't make it too spicy hot for wife's benefit
