Days like this when it’s windy and cold nothing is more comforting than a nice big bowl of chili!  This chili is packed with flavor and healthy ingredients!  But no fear, this chili is hearty enough to satisfy the hunger of any football loving man!

3 Bean Chili

Serves 6

1 large onion, large dice

4 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 large 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes

1 + cup water

1 6 oz. can of tomato paste

1 can of kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can of pinto beans, rinsed and drained

1 ear of corn, zipped or small can of corn, drained

1 red bell pepper, diced

4 oz. of super dark chocolate (like 74% or higher)

2 Tbsp. chili spice blend

1 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

a dash of cayenne (or however spicy you like it)

salt to taste

In a large heavy pot saute the onion and peppers in a little olive oil until just getting soft.  Add all the other ingredients.  Starting with a cup of water and adding more later if needed.  Cover and let simmer on medium low, stirring occasionally for 45 minutes.  You can leave on low for hours on game day 😉

OR Throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker, mix and turn on!  And poof in a few hours, you will have delicious chili!  I would mix it a few times an hours to get the flavors all married.
