Southwestern Black Bean Chili is an easy and hearty chili that will warm you up on a chilly day.
This black bean chili recipe started as the Chasen's Chili recipe and morphed based on what I had in the pantry. I also took a hint from some of the fabulous recipes in Choctoberfest and added some chocolate for extra richness. The result was addicting.
Pair it with some cornbread and a salad. Dinner in under an hour. YUM!
