Tofu is a great addition to any meal that calls for lots of dressing or sauce, and this vegan chili is no exception. Why? Because tofu, like mushrooms, takes on the flavors and nuances of the dish and mimics the texture of meat. This recipe features salty tamari and zesty Mexican seasonings for a well-balanced and satisfying meatless chili.
