Thick and Chunky Black Bean Chili

  February 11, 2013  |    Blog>Recipes

Monday is the second most popular day of the week to eat out or order in. We have a recipe for a yummy black bean chili that is so good you won’t want to order in or go out. And if you don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen cooking, this soup is great because you can just mix the ingredients together and let it do its thing! Or if you have a slow cooker simply make this soup next Sunday and let it do its thing for next Monday.

We must admit the weather recently has made us want to snuggle up next to a fire and eat a steaming bowl or soup or chili. This black bean chili is low in calories, but doesn’t disappoint in the comfort level.
