**I used Somersized homemade barbecue sauce for the hickory bbq sauce it originally asked for. I also didn't have chipotle en adobo so i used 1 tsp ground chipotle and put it in with the tomatoes. Recipe Crumbles are frozen texturized vegetable protein that looks like ground meat. If you don't like soy products, use some ground sausage or meat of some kind and cook it before putting it into the c/p. I find the Recipe Crumbles in the frozen section with the other TVP products - Boca Burgers, Morningstar Farms Grillers, stuff like that. it is made by Morningstar Farms.
