This chili is good for the vegetarian body builders out there who are looking to spice up their post workout meal. The main ingredients is tofu, a light protein packed food made from coagulated soybean milk. It is fairly tasteless itself, but takes on the flavors of the foods that it is cooked with.
Tofu provides many of the essential minerals needed by the body and has been shown to improve serum cholesterol (the good kind of cholesterol) in the body.
