This chili recipe is dedicated to all of my friends and family who have icicles on their cars. Consider this my warm gift to you!
As I sat down to start writing this post, I took a quick glance at my weather situation:
This is what Los Angelenos call Winter. Sometimes it even gets as “cold” as 65 degrees. Brrr, right?
Despite the heat outside, I still love eating comfort food. And nothing says “comfort” like a hearty bowl of warm chili in your tummy.
My three bean chili is made with black beans, red kidney beans, and cannellini beans. We usually add Italian sausage, but you can add another type of meat (shredded chicken, ground beef, ground turkey) or make it vegetarian.
The secret ingredient that makes our chili extra-rich is refried black beans! One day I bought refried black beans by accident and my husband convinced me to use them anyway. I was skeptical, but our chili came out so thick and scrumptious!
The other key to our three bean chili is the seasoning. I tend to use a light hand when I cook other dishes, but I always use more seasoning when I make chili. I love all of the savory flavors mixed up!
