A smokey and flavorful chili is sure to warm you up on a cold night. There are so many different ways to make chili, with a variety of ingredients. I am fond of bean chili’s where as my hubby is a fan of meat chili’s. So, this is a nice mix of both worlds. Even my son loves it on top of noodles or as a “sloppy joe” sandwich. If you like a spicy chili; add more heat with hot sauce or chili powder. You can easily make this a completely vegetarian chili by doubling the beans. The leftovers re-heat easily in the microwave and freezes well for a quick meal on a crazy day. I like serving chili with skinny jalapeno cornbread 🙂 Garnish with cheddar cheese, sour cream and green onions.
