Here's a recipe that I stumbled across while browsing thru SOAR. Doesn't
sound much like chili to me, but with a few changes to the spice content
it might be palatable. Anyhow with the vegetarian thread going on, I
thought some of you might be interested. ;{)	

      Title: YAM CHILI (VEGAN)
 Categories: Chili
      Yield: 1 servings
      1    40-oz can yams/sweet
      1    29-oz can tomato puree
      1    To 2 cup dried beans (*)
    1/4 c  Barbecue sauce
      1 tb Dehydrated onion
      1 ts Black Pepper
      1 tb Chili powder
    1/2 ts Cinnamon
  Cook up the beans normally (soak, boil, simmer).
  Pour yams into pot, including liquid.  Smash lightly. Add tomato
  puree, stir through.  Add spices, stir through. Add cooked beans,
  stir through. Simmer for for a few minutes to mellow out.
  (*) Beans:  I keep a 'bean bucket' of mixed beans, usually including
  pea beans, black-eyed peas, pinto beans, split peas, lentils, navy
  beans, pinto beans; often including great northern beans, roman
  beans, pink beans, chili beans, barley, and others.  Whenever there's
  room in the bucket I pour in a bag of something that seems
  This would probably be better with fresh yams and tomatoes, but the
  canned yams were on sale half price the day after Thanksgiving...
