8 ounces Tomato sauce

This was the Third Place Winner and Best of Show trophy winner at the 4th Annual Lone Star Vegetarian Chili Cookoff held in Dallas in October. It was Thompson, Cam Reilly and Cheryl Witchgers. 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). It's even better the next day.
