chili mock carne


yes, it's a vegetarian chili con carne using tvp instead of beef. i actually served it up to my family and my dad and brother didn't really seem to notice the lack of meat so it's a great way to sneak in a vegetarian meal! it's also a great meal for kids (maybe just reduce the quantity of chili though) as you use those supermarket dinner rolls or corn chips to scoop it up...it's messy but it's fun!
