Craig's Three Bean Chili

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Marina K

A healthy and delicious chili that my boyfriend created to help us get through the cold weather here in Toronto. It happens to be vegan, but could also be adapted to include meat. This recipe fits nicely into our student budget, but doesn't taste like it!

Loved this! Super easy to make too. This is such a nice, hearty meal for a fall evening. I LOVE the idea of using BBQ sauce to add flavor. Also I like that it's healthy...until you top it with sour cream and cheddar like I did...
