A bowl of red (reno red)

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Chilis ( or more) cold water
1 pack TVP (12oz)
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1 clove Garlic; minced
1 tablespoon Cumin
½ teaspoon Red pepper
1 tablespoon Paprika water

Wash, stem and remove the seeds from the chilies. Put the chilies in 3 cups cold water and bring to a boil. After about 45 minutes to an hour, the skins should slop easily. Mash the pulp to a paste. If this seems too difficult, you can substitute chili powder at a ratio of 1 teaspoon of chili powder to 1 pod of chili. Read the instructions on the so or TVP package to see if the product was soaked before hand. If not, use some of the water to prepare this ingredient. Saute the onions in olive oil until translucent. Add the garlic and spices the 12 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then add the TVP nuggets. Reduce to a simmer, cook for 30 minutes to an hour. If this seems too runny, you can thicken with masa, the cornmeal flour used in tortillas. When made in bulk this chili can easily be frozen.
