 TVP Chili
 Soak about 1 cup of TVP in boiling water, to cover, with several tbsp taco
 seasoning, extra chili powder, and salt to taste...let it sit until the TVP has
 soaked up much of the water and flavor from the spices. 
 Meanwhile, saute 1 chopped green pepper, 1 chopped med/large onion, and 
 1-2 cloves finely chopped garlic in wine or balsamic vinegar until the onion 
 is translucent. Stir in one can of diced tomatoes (~16 oz), one or two cans of
 drained and *rinsed* kidney beans, one can of tomato sauce (8 oz), chili powder
 and 1/2-1 tsp dried basil (or several chopped leaves if fresh).  Drain excess
 liquid from the TVP (so there isn't a puddle of water...it can still be wet)
 and add to the rest.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or
 more.  To each bowl my SO and I like a big blob of Pace medium picante, but
 my 6 yo likes it plain with baked Tostito's.
