Julie’s Black Bean Vegetarian Chili has just the right amount of spiciness and vegetables. Peppers, onions, black beans. Garlic, tomatoes, yum!
Julie’s Black Bean Vegetarian Chili, perfect for a cold day.
Our daughter-in-law Julie makes stupendous chili. It’s a delicious 30-minute weekly meal at their house. This Black Bean Vegetarian Chili is simple to make and is not too spicy. Cumin seeds and fresh or jarred chilis add the flavor. Black beans are mild and easily digestible for most folks.
Our family likes this chili with shredded cheese, sour cream and Fritos (affiliate link) on top. Have you tried chili with Fritos on top? Yum, so good!
What You Need
You will need a good Dutch Oven (affiliate link) or soup pot to make this chili, along with the usual knife (affiliate link), cutting board, and measuring cups and spoons. But what you really want is a full set of amazing pans (affiliate link), some wonderful dinnerware and beautiful glassware. Right?
