¡Soy Chili!
(Crock Pot Vegan Chili)
12 cups

1 ½ c. dry beans (I like ½ kidney and ½ black beans)
1 large or 2 small onions, coarsely chopped (at least 2 cups)
~1/2 c. dry soy strips or TVP
6+ cloves garlic, minced or pressed
28 oz. canned diced tomatoes (one big can or two normal-sized cans)
8 oz. can El Pato salsa (or 1 cup other hot salsa)
2-4 tbsp. tomato paste
1 bouillon cube
1 tbsp. chili powder
Optional / to taste
½-1 fresh jalapeno, minced or pressed
cayenne powder
liquid aminos

1. Rinse beans and cover with hot water to at least three times the depth of the beans. Let soak 4 hours to overnight.
2. Drain beans, rinse and add remaining ingredients with enough water so the mixture comes to a little more than an inch from the top of the crock pot (for a 12 cup crock pot). Cover and set the crock pot on high until it begins to boil then turn it to low and simmer 6 hours to overnight.
3. Turn off crock pot, stir chili and taste. If it’s not tomatoey enough add tomato paste; if it’s not hot enough add cayenne. If it’s plenty hot but doesn’t have enough of a chili-like flavor, add cumin. If you want it to have a more meaty taste add liquid aminos.

Pretty much everyone loves those brown soy strips from PC market and doesn’t care about the lack of meat.
You could also use 1 ½ - 2 cans of prepared beans instead of dry, in which case it could simmer for half as long.

ok so kt silk screened these awesome shirts. think im gonna charge like 7 bucks to cover the cost of the shirts and the screen and whatnot.

the shirts are kind of small too, so if you want a bigger size, let me know and we will print it and i will get it to you. or if you have a shirt you want it printed on, that will save us all money.

ok so i guess i havent really posted the info on here, but thats cause nobody reads it. but the cookoff is on saturday, from 4 till whenever people decide to leave.

i got a lot of faygo, and chips and guacamole. so i hope a lot of people come with chili. right now i think about 10 people have told me they are making chili, but we will see how many actually do.

here are the trophies...

the one on the right is a homie painted gold. its kinda lame, but i dont care. second place doesnt deserve that great of a trophy.

and today kt is silk screening some shirts. we havent decided on a pattern yet...

i think we are doing the second one.

so yeah, call me if you need directions or anything. or call bean or alicia. they know whats going on, or at least they will pretend to.

so we went and partied with randy from the real world san diego.

i asked him to be a judge at the cookoff. he used to be vegetarian. but hes not gonna be in michigan. maybe i will postpone the chili cookoff to the next time he is in town. or better yet, we can have one in may or whenever we had planned it, and next time he is in town, we will have another, and the cookoff will be biannual. he is supposed to email me. but who knows. the life of a reality tv star is a hectic one.

alright so it seems like everyone wants to be a judge. like all 5 people that are coming so far. anyway, i think the judges are going to be eric raymond, lex, and my dad. i was going to be a judge, but then i thought, "its my cookoff. why should i have to work? so i'll let my dad do it." but here is how the judging system works.

each judge gets a vote, or maybe two depending on how many people show their ugly faces, and they vote for their favorite(s). also, everyone that shows up will also get to cast a vote for their favorite. the winner of the popular vote gets one additional vote that is equivalent to each of the judges votes. get it? i do.

so yeah, if you want to be in it, you should fill out an application to be a contestant. cause uh, space is filling up. right.

so the only other vegetarian chili cookoff i could find was the lone star chili cookoff in texas. texas sucks so i think ours will be way better. and their flyer is lame. so yeah we definitely win.

so i dont know. me and lex were discussing a date, and she thinks it would be good to wait til late may so it would be all nice and warm out. thats probably a good idea too, since people wont be as busy with school and all. i posted a link in some vegetarian community but nobody even noticed, they were too busy fighting over whether or not there is honey in the bread at subway. bitches. i mean for christs sake, its a chili fucking cookoff! get over the fucking bread! anyway, yeah. chili cookoff. may? we shall see.
