Excellent Recipe, here are my modifications: - used Veg Ground Round instead of text veg protein - added a little white wine and only 2 cups of water, not 4 - 2 cans of kidney beans used - 2 cloves of garlic only. I put everything in a crockpot (sauteed garlic, onions & celery first) and left it on low all day until supper. Delish!!


I was expecting this to be a thicker chili, not so watery. My husband LOVED it and calls it bean soup rather than chili. The next time I make it I might try a little less liquid. I also used it without the textured protein because I couldn't find it in the store!


It's the best Chili I have ever had and if you kind of makeup and add your own things as you go along it's even better.
