Vegetarian Chili ( Crock-pot Recipe)

2 bags of Boca Crumbles (thawed)
1 packet of McCormick chili seasoning
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of chili powder
2 teaspoons of dried minced onion
2 small cans of tomato sauce, and 2 cans of water
1 15 oz can of Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies
( I use mild everything)

Place all ingredients in  your crock-pot set on Low , stir everything to mix well, and put the lid on. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
Serve in a bowl with a little cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.

This is a very thick chili, if you like yours soup like, only use 1 bag of the Boca Crumbles.
I actually liked this better than using ground turkey. The flavor is the same as when I used ground beef.

Also in 90% lean ground beef there are 49 calories per ounce. With Boca crumbles, there are 60 calories per  2 ounces and zero fat. A good source of protein as well.
