Print this Recipe    Chili

1 Onion diced
1 Green Bell pepper
1 Red bell pepper
1 Stalk of celery
2 cups of pinto beans
3 Jalapeno peppers (leave seeds in for HOT chili)
lots of chili powder
6 Tomatoes ripe (do not skin and remove seeds)
2 tbsp. tomato paste
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 package firm tofu
canola oil
water

OK, now do this.

Put the beans in a bowl and wash then with water. then cover the beans
with water 2" over the beans and let soak over night.

Put the tofu in the freezer also over night.

In the morning dump the water out of the beans and remove the tofu
from the freezer. Dice the onion, peppers, celery and sweat them in
the oil.

Cover the beans with water again and bring them to a boil. Then turn
down the heat and simmer for an hour or so until tender. (covered)

When the tofu is thawed, cut into small squares.

Cut the tomatoes into slices and cook over medium heat until they
disintegrate. Smoosh the garlic and add to tomato mush. Then add
sweated onion and peppers and tomato paste. Then add cooked beans (minus
the water they were cooked in). Add the chili powder salt and pepper
to taste. Simmer the whole thing for at least an hour, adding water if it
gets too thick. Dump in the tofu at the end and simmer the whole thing.

This is the basic approach. Only make HOT chili as the mild is not
worth the effort.
