|Chili, a myriad of colors|
For a tailgate, chili is extremely versatile. We decided to make breakfast burritos and chili cheese dogs for a nice breakfast/lunch combo. Often we dont eat anything but appetizers for the first few hours, so the though of a hearty breakfast burrito is appealing. A key to keeping the chili warm throughout the day is either to plug in a crockpot or bring a pot to heat on the grill.
There are two kinds of vegan chili as defined by the Long Star Veggie Chili Cookoff: traditional and all veg. “All Veg” chilis are made with only vegetables, while the “Traditional” chili contain a meat analog or substitute like seitan or tempeh. I opted to make a traditional chili with seitan and TVP, and my buddy Chris made the multi-bean and roasted veggie chili (recipe coming later this week). I'll also include my recipe for tofu scramble for the breakfast burritos. Enjoy!
