Also known as chili sin carne. This is one of our camping meals, since it only requires one burner to prepare.



  • 1 large can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained
  • 1/2-3/4 cups soy granules (reconstituted)
  • chili powder (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • tabasco (to taste)

Sauté the onion in a large skillet.
Pour all the other ingredients together in and heat.
Season to taste with tabasco, salt pepper and cayenne or chili powder.
Whenever I cook with beans, I add some cumin, it is known to help against the gassy effect that beans have.
I serve this over rice and with cornbread on the side.
