Chili – No Chop Black Bean Chili

No Chop Black Bean Chili

This chili is just so easy – ingredients are canned, frozen and dried. I call these easy-peasy dishes NO CHOP, but it’s your choice to chop or not. From start to finish, this simple throw-together chili can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. [On the other hand, if you want a more complex Chili recipe, turn to the one in my book Enjoy Cooking Whole Food, Plant-Based ENTRÉES with Coach BJ
