30 minutes is enough time to get a piping hot bowl of this Frito Chili Pie in front of you and your family! My family is from the South, and chili just doesn't come without a heaping pile of onions, a generous dollop of mustard (the yellow variety), and more than one serving of corn chips. This classic vegetarian chili is perfect for cold winter nights.

  • 1 cup TVP Granules
  • 1 cup Hot Water
  • 1 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ medium Onion, diced

  1. Add the ketchup to the hot water and stir. Pour the hot water over the TVP and set aside for 10 minutes.
