My recipe was okay. Spiced well (I relied a lot on chipotle tabasco which worked out well), but the faux meat will never take in the flavors as well as beef or similar. In the future, I may still add my fake meat, but focus more on beans and other veggies to make it more a stew. I wasn't wholly unhappy, but as a vegetarian Texan- I was already setting myself up for breaking so many of the srs chili rules.

Possibly a Barrels of Crud (Bag o' Chili)!

You might try marinating the f'meat in adobo and a bit of liquid smoke before putting it in the chili. Honestly, though, I think tempeh is the best substitute in situations like this.

Seitan is also a delicious meat-free meat, although it will kill your gluten-free friends.
