Smoky Spicy Three Bean Chili

Cheesy Spinach and Green Chile Enchiladas
Remember how I hatched a plot to eat greens at every meal? Yeah…desserts kind of got in the way of that healthy plan. But you know, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and I am still trying to focus on the greenery as much as possible! So this month for the Secret Recipe Club challenge, […]

This chili is stupendous. It really is. And I absolutely love that it’s basically a complete meal in a bowl! It’s got whole grains, protein, veggies, flavor for miles… I’m not going to go on and on about it, because you should really just grab some pots and spoons and make it!
