This is a great snack to enjoy while watching the big game! This recipe uses THRIVE Beef TVP. I know many are wondering what the heck is TVP!. TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) is an excellent protein source that is easy to store and use. TVP is made from soy flour. It is pressure cooked and then the oil is extruded and dried. TVP is high in fiber, protein and low in fat, this makes TVP ideal for food storage and also for every day use. Because TVP is not made from meat, it does not have the contamination risk that many meats have with bacteria such as E. Coli and Salmonella. Because it is soy based, it is perfect for those on a vegetarian diet. TVP is best mixed into soups, stews, dips and chilis. With a cost less than a third of regular meat it makes a great item for your food storage and when you need to make large quantities of a dish.
1 Can Pinto Beans Drained
1 Can Rotel Tomatoes Fiesta Style
