Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
TVP stand for Texturized Vegetable Protein, and it is pure soy protein. It is often sold in bulk in natural foods stores.

If you want to skip the TVP, you can substitute 1 cup cooked bulgur, soy "burger" crumbles, or finely crumbled tempeh. A great recipe for chili!
