Vulgar Bulgar Vegetarian Chili

Winner of the 2009 ITS Chili Cookoff "Luke Skywalker Award". This is less a recipe and more a general guideline for what to dump together to get this chili, because that's exactly what I did.

Take 3 cups of bulgar wheat and soak it in cold water --- it doesn't take long. Drain any remaining water off and put the bulgar in a 6 quart crock pot. Make or buy 1-1/2 cups of sofrito and dump that in. Take a small can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, dump the adobo sauce in, mince up the chilies and dump those in. Add a 28 ounce can of tomato puree and two 14.5 ounce can of diced peeled tomatoes. Dump in 2 14.5 ounce cans of navy beans and 2 of kidney beans. Add a 4 ounce can of roasted and diced green chilies. Dump in 1 cup of nutritional yeast, and toast and grind up 2 tablespoons of cumin and throw in. Mix everything together and salt to taste. Cook overnight in a crock pot on low, adding water if necessary.

It's not overly spicy --- I'm a fan of flavor over fire, but it has a nice residual heat.
