      1/3   c            Oil
    3       md           Onions, chopped
    2                    Stalks celery, chopped
    4                    Cloves garlic, minced
    1                    Bell pepper, chopped
    1                    Jalapeno pepper, minced
    2       lb           Tofu chunks
    2       T            Each ground red chilis,
                         -cumin, oregano
    1                    Bay leaf
    2       c            Water
    2                    28 oz. cans tomatos
    6       oz           Can tomato paste
    2       cn           Kidney beans
                         -salt to taste
 
   Saute first five ingredients in oil until limp.  Add tofu and saute
   until browned.  Mix the spices together in a bowl and sprinkle into the
   pot.  Mix thoroughly.  Add water, tomatoes and tomato paste.  Stir.
   Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, stirring
   occasionally.  If desired, at this point, add the kidney beans.  Taste
   and correct seasoning.  The addition of 1 tsp to 1 tblsp of cayenne
   pepper can make this gradually more spicy.  As the recipe reads, itUs
   fairly tame.  NOTE: The ground chilis are NOT chili powder.  Most chili
   powder is made up of a combination of chilis, oregano, cumin, salt and
   garlic.  If chili powder is all you can find, then you will have to
   readjust the cumin and oregano amounts.
