Day 27 – Veggie Chili

So this recipe I normally wing after a quick call to my Dad and Step-Mom. My Dad is the king of meat chili and I always ask his advice. This time I ended up getting the low down from my Step mom because she has made meatless chili before. Her tip this time was to add a little bit of curry powder. I was skeptical even as I was making it but I gotta say it was actually pretty good. You don’t taste the curry powder right away but its more of an after taste that pleases your taste buds for a brief moment before disappearing.
These are the ingredients I used on this day but please add/take away anything you don’t like or want more of.

4cups of beans (bulk Texas chili mix was used here)
