True story-- I live in Texas, have several times made this chili totally vegan, entered it in "regular" ("carnivore") chili competitions, and taken home ribbons, including 1st place. I used Boca crumbles once (browned in olive oil first to add that greasy chili component) and cheap TVP the next, so zero cholesterol or animal protein in it so we can avoid the diabetes and heart disease so common in our meat-obsessed society now. Everywhere I take this, people rave, and nobody believes it's all vegan. I wait till I got the ribbon before telling everyone there wasn't a spec of meat in it. It's cooking up in the slow cooker right now, and I'm going to wow more people tomorrow at my new job. I, like other users, also changed the tomato juice to tomato sauce, and the tomato sauce to diced tomatoes. Other than that, and getting rid of the animal flesh for stuff that lets me eat till I almost burst without gaining an ounce, the recipe is perfect as is.
