Taco Filling

Mix together in a saucepan:
        1 1/4 cups cold water
        1 Tbsp. sundried tomato bits (dry, not oilpak)
        1 tsp. dried minced onions
        1/2 tsp. garlic powder
        1 Tbsp. mild chili powder
        1 tsp. cumin
        1/2 tsp. sugar or equivalent
        2 Tbsp. Bragg's liquid aminos (or 1 Tbsp. soy sauce)
        1 Tbsp. cornstarch
Stir until cornstarch dissolves.  The stir in:
        1/2 cup plain TVP granules
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; stir and simmer until it is of the
desired consistency for tacos, about 2 to 5 minutes.

Put into a taco shell; top with the usual.

Note:  If you don't have sundried tomato bits, chop up some sundried tomato
halves in a food processor.  Or make them by cutting Roma or Italian plum
tomatoes in half; dry in a dehydrator until they're dry yet still flexible;
leave them out for a day to "cure;" store, preferably in the freezer.  Don't
use any other kind of tomato, as they're too watery and seedy.
