Introduction: Vegetarian Chili Cabbage Wrap Thing.......?

Step 1: Ingredients

1. Fantastic World Foods Vegetarian Chili Mix.
2. Herdez  Salsa...*A store brand has more moisture than my own.
3. Head of  Cabbage.

Step 2: Portions

Measure off 1/2 cup of  Herdez and 1/3 cup of Chili Mix.

Step 3: Mixing

Mix both ingredients into a dish and let sit for about 2 hours.  *this mix is made to be cooked with hot water....NOT!  I just give it time to "self cook".

Step 4: Cabbage

1. Peal off 2 leafs of Cabbage.
2. Cut away unwanted portion of Cabbage.

Step 5: Cooking of Cabbage

Boil, steam, whatever!  Just cook it to your taste. This I cooked about 4 to 5 minutes with a lid.

Step 6: Cooling of Cabbage

I lay it out on a towel to dry and cool down for a couple of minutes.

Step 7: Roll It Up Dude!

Roll it up folding one end over at the beginning.
The amount used is in proportion to the size of the cabbage leaf. 

Step 8: Store

I store this in a dish with a paper towel at the bottom to suck out any extra moisture.
Of course, I usually make a few more than this at one time.  I also let this sit for a while to "dry up".  I put these in my old produce bags and take them as lunch on the go.

This stuff is great, but not very spicy. Adding in the salsa and the wrap is a great idea. I might use several layers of cabbage.

Ive never seen chili like that but then Im not vegan so I haven't looked. Your idea of just allowing the juices of the salsa to rehydrate the chilli mix seems like a winner and the resulting mix doesn't look real wet. Not being a vegan I would probably add some cheese to the roll up but I would consider trying the vegan chilli if I can find it. Cabbage and lettuce leaves make a tasty wrap for a lot of fillings either raw or cooked. The last picture put me in the mood for gramma's stuffed cabbage.....

  I was turned on to this product by a girlfriend.  I then used it on my various cycling/hobo camping trips as dry food, where my hydration methods got perfected. 
  As for the cabbage, I first read that Captain Cook solved his Scurvy problems with it in the form of barreled Sauerkraut.  Then I took a stroll last summer through east Texas and Arkansas, now I cannot leave the stuff alone!
