“I put this recipe together while trying to find something to fix on a Friday during Lent. It is a tomato based chili with imitation crab and shrimp. Has some heat to it, but not too spicy for my taste because I don't like food so overly spicy you can't taste any of the other flavors. It is fairly simple to put together too. You can serve it with rice if you like or just alone with some crusty bread on the side and a salad.”
