This chili is particularly for bean-lovers because it’s chock full of four kinds of beans (more if you wish).  It’s equally delicious with our without ground meat. If you do add meat, be sure to use ground chicken, turkey or extra lean ground beef to keep the chili from simmering in nasty fat all day!

VEGETARIAN CHILI

It’s also great for little chili lovers because you can sneak shredded vegetables in without anyone noticing. So it’s tasty and healthy!
