    4       c            Vegetable stock

                         -Crushed corn chips for
   Soak beans in cold water to cover 8 hours or
   overnight. drain.
   Combine crumbled tempeh, wine, soy, cumin, basil,
   chili; let marinate for 2 hours at least.
   Meanwhile, in a 6 qt. pan over medium high heat, saute
   onions in sherry and oil 10 minutes, stirring. Add
   mushroom and cook 10 more minutes.
   Add tomatoes, green pepper, carrot, celery, chili,
   jalapenos, garlic. Saute stirring 5 minutes.
   Add beans, stock, tomato paste. Bring to boil, cover,
   lower heat, simmer 2 to 3 hours till beans are tender.
   Add tempeh and marinade. cook 10 minutes. Serve
   garnished with chips.
   NOTES: This is a midwestern chili (beans and
   tomatoes!).  I added some leftover crushed tomatoes,
   and we garnished it with non-fat sour cream and
   chopped cilantro (better for you than corn chips). A
   more traditional chili style would be to relplace all
   tomatos with a red chili sauce: split and de-seed dry
   red anchos, anahiems, and/or gujanailos (sp?) and sear
   on a hot cast iron skillet. put in a bowl and cover by
   boiling water. let soak 20 min, then puree, maybe with
   a little garlic (and usually salt, but not for this
   recipe!). Use that instead of tomato paste and crushed
   Enjoy, Keith
