Let me start by saying I’m a born-and-bred meat lover. Meatless Fridays in Lent … especially one or two of those Fridays … I seriously have to REMEMBER to be good and eat tuna fish.
So the other day while wandering around the grocery store and spied these little bags of “Smart Chili” goodness on the produce shelf, I though. “Hmmm… looks like chili with beans. But does it TASTE like chili with beans?!”
The carnivore in me does not die quietly.
I tried it. And I LIKED IT!!! Nuke it 2.5 minutes, toss a little reduced-fat cheddar on top and zap it again a minute or so, then serve with corn chips. Yum.
My new favorite meatless Friday lunch. Try it! (Don’t let the “veggie protein” label scare you.) Now … if I can just find a good family-size recipe for it … Any ideas?
one thing you DO NOT mess with is CHILI!!!
nope uh-huh fagettaboutit!!
