Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The best chili seasoning mix to use is Williams Tex Mex Chili Seasoning Mix in 1 oz packets, but you can use 2 Tbs of any other chili seasoning mix, or mix your own from various types of chili powders, onion powder and garlic.
  2. To reconstitute the texturized vegetable protein, boil almost 1 cup of water and then add 1 cup of the dry TVP. Stir and let stand for about 5 minutes. Morningstar makes a good meat substitute - freezer section, by the Boca.
  3. Heat all ingredients for about 20 minutes in a saucepan, stirring frequently.
  4. Sprinkle liberally with cheesy goodness after it is in a bowl. Serve with cornbread made from scratch in a cast iron pan. Goes great with beer, especially a Harp or red or brown ale.
