Being vegetarian, we love the crumbles. I also like to use TVP, which has a similar texture to boca crumbles. My one go-to for chili, though, is cashews! I have made batches of chili for parties using them and it is alwasy a hit! I smash them with a rolling pin and add about halway through the cooking time. So delicious!
Wow...I have never heard of Boca Crumbles, but I am sure going to look for them next time I go to the grocery store. What section are they in??

I bought a bag and stuck it in the freezer. My husband made a batch of chili, not realizing he was adding "fake meat". Niether of us realized what he had done until I asked him what happened to my Boca Crumbles! We really can't tell the difference.
Family wanted chili for dinner today and with so many Christmas chores to finish, I didn't feel much like frying and draining the fat off the ground beef. In a crockpot, I put chopped onion, chopped celery, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and chili seasoning. This time in place of the ground beef, I used a bag of Boca crumbles I kept in the freezer not knowing what to do with it. Everyone enjoyed the Chili and no one noticed the difference-no meat! Not even my picky DH! This will become a staple item.
