It might seem a little early for Fall comfort food- but I honestly think that the moment kids are back at school and Fall clothing has taken over the malls- something happens, and you start to feel a chill in the air. When this occurs, I am sure you can agree with me, that there is nothing better than coming home to a piping hot cup of soup or chili. This recipe is one that I have made over the last 5 years, and I simply adore it, because I customize and change it a little bit each and every time. When I bring it to work for lunch, I will always get a couple co-workers asking me, What smells so good?!? Although you can use ground meat in the recipe, I don’t – first off because I don’t eat very much meat, and secondly, it tastes sort of smoky anyways which gives it a ‘meaty’ flavour, naturally. This chili is chock full of vitamins and minerals from the veggies, as well protein and fiber from the beans, to keep you full throughout the day. Below, I also mention my newest way of eating this chili- pureed– which gives it the same great taste, but an entirely different texture. I highly recommend you giv’er a try.
