I just feel i have to share this recipe.. i have made it often, even before vegan.. everyone likes it.. you can substitute dry beans & fresh tomatos for canned when in season. Also I find myself adding different types of pepper for layers of flavor. chili powder, cayanne pepper, and mexican chili powder.
I also use water now instead of oil and just leave out the crumbles.
