|Spicy High Protein Black Bean Chili|
Today is definitely one of those rainy days that just makes you want to curl up under a blanket with a good book and a bowl of soup and stay put for awhile. I didn't have the luxury of the blanket or the book yet, but I definitely enjoyed the soup, or in this case, chili. I love cooking with beans because they are a meatless, high protein way to satisfy even the strongest appetite. Like most of my recipes, this one can be switched around depending on what type of beans and veggies you prefer or have on hand, because it is the basic process and seasonings that make it so deliciously simple. Because I wanted more protein, I decided to add TVP (textured vegetable protein), which is basically just dried soy beans, into this chili, but that is completely optional. Either way, this is quick to throw together, can sit on the stove simmering for hours and will feed a family of 4-6 easily. So feed your body, mind and spirit tonight with this bowl of healthfulness.
