Tempeh chili

with 2 comments

Made this tonight: Sauté 1.5 onions (that’s what I had: one large red onion, 1/2 sweet onion) and this tempeh (sliced into slabs, then across into rectangles) in 2 Tbsp bacon fat (or olive oil).

I then added 8 cloves minced garlic, salt, lots of freshly ground black paper, 1.5 Tbsp ancho chili powder, 1.5 Tbsp ground cumin, 2 Tbsp Mexican oregano, and 2 tsp thyme and sautéed that for a while.

Then I added black beans that I had cooked (1 c dried Black Valentine beans, simmered for a little over an hour without pre-soaking them, and then drained when they were done), along with one 14.5-oz can diced tomatoes, 1 can Ro-Tel Original tomatoes with green chili, one 7-oz can Ortega Fire-Roasted diced green chiles, about 1 Tbsp liquid smoke, 2 tsp soy sauce, and 2 tsp rice vinegar. I simmered that covered for 30 minutes.

Tasty served with grated cheese on top.

  2. BTW, this is not particularly hot, though it does have some spiciness. The Wife cannot eat really spicy food. You could kick this up by adding 2 tsp of chipotle powder (or mince a couple of chipotles canned in adobo sauce).
