Dad’s Easy Chili (A Family Favorite!)

I would have to say of all of my family’s favorite ‘go to’ meals, this chili recipe tops the list.

We use canned beans to make it easy, but canned beans do contain some sugars and preservatives (This is a compromise for us for convenience). If you would like to avoid these additives, you can use dried beans.

On the plus side, this recipe does not call for meat and you can add to the nutritional value in a few different ways…

  1. My daughter and I like to put a big scoop of cooked Quinoa or Shaytard’s Quinoa Salad on top. This is super filling and super healthy!
  2. I have added a scoop of Green Cabbage Slaw on top in the past. This makes for a nice blending of textures.
  3. My husband likes to chop up an onion and sprinkle it on top to add some crunch.

Enjoy! And, let me know what you think of the recipe in the comments below!
