Netflix & Chili

This quinoa chili is super easy to make and perfect if you need meals for the week or want to share! I highly recommend listening to Beyonce’s Daddy Lessons while cooking for a complete experience.

What goes in:

1 Can Kidney Beans

1 Can Black Beans

2 Cans Diced Tomatoes (I used unsalted)

1 Can Tomato Sauce

1 Can Corn

1  Can Green Chilies (I used the small Trader Joes can)

1/2 Yellow Onion, chopped

1 Jalapeno, chopped

1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped

2 tbsp. Garlic

2 Cups Cooked Quinoa

16 fl. oz. Vegetable Broth (half of a standard box)

1/2 Squeezed Lime

Olive Oil

Seasoning: Chipotle Seasoning, Paprika, Black Pepper, Cumin

What you do:

While your quinoa is cooking, chop your onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno and put them in a soup pot with a drizzle of olive oil and the garlic on medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes and then add beans, corn, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, green chilies, and vegetable broth. I drained the beans and corn cans, but all the others went right in as is. By now your quinoa should be done and can be mixed in . Next, add the seasoning. I used just a few shakes of chipotle seasoning, a few shakes a black pepper, a few shakes of paprika, and a generous amount of cumin. Give the chili a few stirs and put the lid on. Since everything is cooked, you are pretty much just waiting for it to warm up and for all the flavors to mix together. Once it is finished, squeeze half a lime in and you’re all set! Make sure to test taste and add more seasoning to your liking. (Topping options: cilantro, avocado, shredded Mexican cheese, lime wedges, sour cream)
