After ~ forty minutes, it's time to add . . .

. . . beer at the lowest flame setting possible . . .

. . . because it will tend to bubble . . .

. . . and can boil over if the heat is too high. Stir, then add cubed soy sausage patties . . .

One other ingredient that you can throw into the mix . . .

. . . and which was left off the list is finely chopped celery. Not strictly necessary, but it adds both flavor and texture . . .

Chili and Vegetarian.....hmmm words that don't

March 31 2011, 11:32 PM 

immediately go together in Tex-Mex culture.

I'm thinking of the stereotype Texas, New Mexico, Arizona denizen happy.gif

For me, it looks good already!

"Texas red" is the standard, no doubt . . .

. . . JerryW responded on PPro that he'd never had vegetarian chili, which is hardly surprising since he's a native Texan . . .

Is there a Art's famous chili listed on the menu at Rainbow Bar&Grill?

Nope, but there are two off-menu items . . .

April 5 2011, 4:44 AM 

. . . that you can order if you get word thru to Miguel or Kiki: Art's swordfish, which is prepared with sautéed yellow peppers and onions, accompanied by chopped romaine salad, and Art's guacamole, which is a pale imitation of the real thing, but still quite good, and which comes with carrots and celery instead of chips.

Mom has been making chili for decades, and honed this recipe over the years to accommodate my diet. I'm not sure where she got the idea about adding beer, but the suggestion for substituting veggie sausage patties for meat came from my pal James Corona, who you might remember as the guy that produced his own wine, and which was received favorably by MTF, Elliot, and Bill at our MTF reception in 2008.
