Simply wonderful! Followed recipe but altered slightly to better suit our taste. Since we prefer our dishes not too spicy, I omitted the jalapeno. Omitted the grn pepper since we don't care for grn peppers & increased the r. pepper since we love r. pepper. After sautéing the onion (& 5 lg. clvs garlic at the last 2 mins), I remove from skillet & sautéd r. pepper as well (about 8 mins). We like our r. pepper cooked down slightly to bring out the flavor (you could probably sauté the onion & r. pepper together, & garlic at last 2 mins). Tossed in zucchini at last 2 mins. Omitted cilantro since we don't care for it. Used organic chicken broth rather than water to cook quinoa (enhances flavor) & instead of ground beef or turkey, used TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein). A wonderful meat substitute! *Bob's Red Mill TVP is the best! (also Quinoa) Google it or look it up (Amazon, Vitacost, etc.) & read the reviews. This is a must have for the peeps who want to incorporate healthier foods into their diet. Reconstitute the TVP with org. chicken/veg. broth by bring broth to a simmer in med. skillet. Stir in TVP, lower temp. cont. stirring & let reconstitute for 1 min. Remove from heat & viola, you have your "protein packed" meat substitute. Added an extra cup of org. chicken broth to the chili to keep from being too thick. The chili was not only incredibly flavorful but it's PACKED with protein & virtually fat free. A dollop of low-fat sour cream made an extra yummy addition. Bon appétit!
