1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and season with bay leaves, cumin, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until onion is tender, then mix in the celery, green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, and garlic.
2. When vegetables are heated through, mix in meat substitute. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer 5 minutes.
3. Mix the tomatoes into the pot. Season with chili powder and pepper. Stir in all the beans. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes. Stir in the corn, and continue cooking 5 minutes before serving. Add a little vegetable stock if necessary.

This is a great recipe and it makes a lot.
Thank you. I’m glad it’s helpful
What else can you use instead of meat substitute, what are some other options? Thanks
Legumes and beans are great meat substitutes. Garbanzos are great in soups and stews. You can also try extra firm tofu in stir fries and curries.
I have seen alot of recipes with canned beans, I noticed on the ones I have at home there is a chemical in them. I went to the store but could not find any without it. What brand would I need to look for? Thanks
Try Trader Joe’s or WholeFoods 🙂
Awesome recipe. So delicious!
Thank you for sharing your recipes! Can you please specify what you are referring to when you say “2 pkgs of meat substitute”? Can you give an example please? Thanks.
