Sandy's Chili
From: Stephanie da Silva

  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 med. onions, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 2 lbs. tofu chunks
  • 2 T. each ground red chilis, cumin, oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt to taste
  • 2 c. water
  • 2 28 oz. cans tomatos
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 2 cans. kidney beans
Saute first five ingredients in oil until limp.
Add tofu and saute until browned.
Mix the spices together in a bowl and sprinkle into the pot.
Mix thoroughly.
Add water, tomatoes and tomato paste.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
If desired, at this point, add the kidney beans.

Taste and correct seasoning.
The addition of 1 tsp. to 1 T. of cayenne pepper can make this gradually more spicy.
As the recipe reads, it's fairly tame.
NOTE: The ground chilis are NOT chili powder.
Most chili powder is made up of a combination of chilis, oregano, cumin, salt and garlic.
If chili powder is all you can find, then you will have to readjust the cumin and oregano amounts.
