My momma is an amazing cook! My husband and brother-in-laws can agree with that… all of them gained a few extra pounds when they started coming around from all of the yummy dinners and treats that she made! One dinner that I have always loved is her vegetarian chili. Whenever anyone tries it, they always love it and want the recipe. It seriously is the best chili that I have ever tasted! I love that it is simple and healthy. It is loaded with veggies and has tons of protein and fiber from the beans… beans are the magical fruit ya know! Haha I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as I do.:)
