Recipe

Chili is a great meal to make on the weekends and then eat during the week or store for quick and easy meals in the future. There are about a million ways to make vegetarian chili but lately I have been loving a combination of quinoa, pinto beans, peppers, onions, carrots, and lots of spices. I like the texture and flavor the quinoa adds and the added protein is a nice bonus as well. This chili is also delicious with some sweet potato, butternut squash, or hearty greens.
