Black Bean Chili

Time: 35-40 min

Difficulty: Easy

Being a big fan of soup, I’m always on the lookout for new recipes — or at least variations on recipes I’ve made before. Well one of my all-time favorite soups is black bean chili, which I recently found a recipe for on the Beachbody Blog. I used their recipe as a base, but made a few tweaks of my own based on what I thought would be good additions. The end result was nothing short of my quintessential black bean chili — it’s hearty, healthy, Vegetarian-friendly, all sorts of delicious, and pairs perfectly with some Sweet Cornbread Muffins. And it made for another nice addition to my 50 in 15 Challenge.

This past Saturday, I was inspired to make something new for my 50 in 15 Challenge. And since it’s still bitterly cold outside here in Michigan, I wanted to make a nice, warm comfort food. So I decided to whip up a hearty and healthy chili in my crock pot that would cook all afternoon and be ready for dinner. The end result was a delicious and hearty bowl of goodness that really helped warm up an otherwise chilly day. And as an added bonus, I also made some delicious and tender Sweet Cornbread Muffins to accompany the chili.

Time: 50 min

Difficulty: Easy

I’ve been on a big soup kick lately. And on a relaxing Sunday afternoon (especially during another Michigan winter), there’s something especially comforting about making a fresh batch of homemade soup. I’ve made a variety of soups already, but today I tackled a heart-healthy homemade Minestrone for the first time, and boy was it delicious. It proved to be a perfect addition to a side salad for the first course of our dinner of Lasagna Rolls. And since it was my first time making Minestrone, I am also able to check off another recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge.
