Instructions
  1. Start by gathering all the ingredients and placing them at your work station. This really does save time and cuts down on pilot/cook error. I move the ingredients to the side once they have been used in order to avoid accidentally doubling up on an ingredient.
  2. Dice onion and mince garlic, keeping separate on cutting board.
  3. Add 1/4 veggie broth or water to a large pot and turn heat to high.
  4. Add diced onion to pot, turn heat to medium high and stir fry for 5-10 minutes until translucent, stirring often and adding liquid as needed.
  5. Add minced garlic to pot and stir for one minute, being careful not to scorch.
  6. Add the salsa and stir for 2-3 minutes until mixture begins to take on a caramelized appearance.
  7. Add chili powder and stir for 1 minute until well blended.
  8. Add canned tomatoes, pasta sauce and beans.
  9. Bring to a boil and then turn down to low and simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking.
  10. If desired, add Veggie Ground Round and stir to heat through.
  11. Add olive oil if desired and stir to combine.
  12. Add salt and pepper to taste.
