    Something else. Excellent Recipe! I put everything in a slow cooker (sauteed garlic, onions & celery first) and left it on low all day until supper. Delish!!  -  24 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I halved the recipe, adding about a teaspoon of minced garlic, and adding about two handfuls of TVP, dry. My roommates and family absolutely loved it! I think it's my favourite chilli.  -  24 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. This recipe was a great base. I omited the celery. Due to another review, I cut down on the water by 200ml. I wanted my chilli meaty, so I substituted about 500g browned mince for half of the TVP. The result was delicious. I am sure that it would be equally tasty made accoring to the recipe - but I would hold off on part of the water, and see how thick you want it.  -  24 Jul 2008
