How to make Easy-Beany Vegetarian Chili

Wow Kidney Bean, who knew you were packin so much good stuff? I have never been big into beans but as I try to slowly fade meat out of my diet, beans are looking better and better. Kidney beans alone contain over 80 nutrients. Yes, beans beans are the magical fruit the more you eat the more you toot healthy fiber you get!!

Last night I wanted something really hearty for dinner and when trying not to eat meat, that can be a challenge. A lot of vegetarians become ‘cheeseatarians‘ and eat tons of mac n’ cheese and other cheesy dinners. I’m trying to get healthy here, not just skip meat! Vegetarian Chili is the answer!!Chili means two things to me. There is the chili that is beefy and thick and you eat it with fritos and cheese (aka a delicious frito pie). And there is chili that you can still see the veggies and is thick by the tomatoes. That’s the chili I set out to make and I sure did succeed.The chili was just what I wanted. Hearty, filling, healthy, and definitely satisfying.
