Four Bean Chili

My bulk Tuesdays are getting old. We’re kind of tired of lentils, red bean chili or chickpeas, so I needed (and still need) to find some new twists for my leguminous Tuesday lunches. I was happy to find this Four Bean Chili recipe, even though we’re still talking about beans… and chili… again, I find that mixing four different types of beans in an all-vegetarian meal would certainly bring a different twist.

I didn’t use any canned ingredients simply because I prefer to use fresh cooked beans.  You can certainly use cans to make this an even easier meal. I also incorporated zucchini to the mix, you can add any variety you like.

Chili con Carne

Chili con Carne has been a family favorite, so naturally I had to search for a really great recipe. I found this one, and even though it was a cook off winner, I had the nerve to adjust it to my own taste. I can’t help myself!

Don’t be afraid of the cocoa and cinnamon, try it. I promise you will like the flavor, and it doesn’t end up tasting like chocolate beans. Don’t use regular cocoa though! Use the unsweetened kind.

I also recommend that you top this dish with shredded cheddar cheese.
