Title: A Bowl of Red (Reno Red)
Categories: Vegetarian, Vegan, Chili
Yield: 8 Servings

6 Chilis ( or more)
3 c -cold water
1 pk TVP (12oz)
2 tb Olive oil
1 md Onion, finely chopped
1 cl Garlic; minced
1 tb Cumin
1/2 ts Red pepper
1 tb Paprika
12 c -water

Wash, stem and remove the seeds from the chilies. Put the chilies in 3
cups cold water and bring to a boil. After about 45 minutes to an hour, the
skins should slop easily. Mash the pulp to a paste. If this seems too
difficult, you can substitute chili powder at a ratio of 1 teaspoon of
chili powder to 1 pod of chili. Read the instructions on the so or TVP
package to see if the product was soaked before hand. If not, use some of
the water to prepare this ingredient. Saute the onions in olive oil until
translucent. Add the garlic and spices the 12 cups of water. Bring to a
boil, then add the TVP nuggets. Reduce to a simmer, cook for 30 minutes to
an hour. If this seems too runny, you can thicken with masa, the cornmeal
flour used in tortillas. When made in bulk this chili can easily be frozen.
