Chili Recipe

One pot and just a few ingredients are all you need to make this hearty chili. For this particular chili recipe, I chose to use red beans and chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans. To make this an easy recipe, I used canned beans that I rinsed off in cool water and drained.

Canned beans are another staple that I keep in my pantry. Beans are a great source of protein, they're inexpensive and can be easily incorporated into a variety of different meals.

You can substitute other beans for the beans called for in this recipe. You can even eliminate the sausage altogether if you'd like to make a vegetarian chili. Either way, the base of the chili recipe will stay the same.

This easy one pot meal comes together quickly. The recipe yields just the right amount if you're cooking for just one or two people. If you're cooking for one, the leftovers will taste absolutely fantastic the next day.
