1 bag Morningstar Farms "Burger" Crumbles
1 lg onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
16 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
16 oz can stewed tomatoes (with juice)
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Tabasco
Throw everything in the crockpot, give it a stir, turn it on LOW, and let it cook at least 6 hours, preferably more like 8. Serves 3-4 (yeah, it's a pretty small batch).
This makes a pretty mild chili; adjust Tabasco to taste.
You can also make this with ground turkey. Brown the turkey in a skillet first, and then add it to the crockpot with the remaining ingredients. You may need to add more salt if you use turkey, but wait till just before serving & season to taste. I'll tell ya, though... I've made it both ways, and the "burger" (soy) crumbles are actually better!
I've also made it on the stovetop, but really, it's better in the crockpot. PS - I've fed this to a lot of non-vegetarians, and nobody ever guessed it wasn't beef.
