I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Vegan Chili

This is kind of a sweet chili, the kids and husband LOVED it!!

3/4 c. water
1 c. dehydrated TVP (you can sub this for 1# of cooked ground beef or turkey if like, however it would no longer be considered vegan)
1 T. olive oil
1 onion, diced or 1/2 - 1 c. of dehydrated onions, reconstituted
2 t. garlic, minced
1 large can of bushs baked beans (we used the Vegetarian style)
2 cans kidney beans
1 large or 2 small cans of tomato sauce
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes with chilies
1 pkt of chili seasoning (we used lowry's)
1/4 c. masterpiece bbq sauce.

Reconstitute TVP by boiling the water then add the tvp. Stir well, so it doesn't burn. Turn off burner. While the TVP sits, add 1 T. Olive Oil to a large sauce pan, when hot add onions and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent. Then add the Tvp, mix well to coat the TVP with onion mixture. Cook about 2 more minutes. Then add remaining ingredients. Cook for 15-20 minutes. Then serve. You can garnish with sour cream and cheese if you like.
