    1       c            Textured Vegetable Protein
    Saute onions, garlic, and peppers in oil until onions
   are translucent. Add spices and simmer for two
   minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients, adding the TVP®
   last. You can adjust the amount of TVP® to obtain the
   desired texture and consistency. You can substitute
   beer for the water for a more unique flavor. One
   jalapeno makes a mild chili (two were used for the
   cookoff). Simmer from four to six hours. It’s even
   better the next day.
