I should let you know that I love Thompsons Ultimate Mix bean chili soup recipe, but have modified it for my vegan son. I place a block of tofu in the food processor and process it until it is the consistency of ground beef. I then fry it just as you would ground beef. I use vegetable stock rather that beef stock. I place everything in a slow cooker and it simmers all day. 

It makes a large amount of soup.
