Chili is one of the easiest meals to make and can be customized any way you like, whether that’s spicy or mild, Mexican or sweet, vegan or beef. The possibilities are endless and it keeps really well for meal prep. You can have on it’s own or on top of cooked quinoa with a fried egg, breakfast or dinner 🙂

I like to think this Chili has a little Mexican flare to it. 🙂
