My dear friend Georgia is a wonderful cook who prepares healthy food. She was recently featured in our local newspaper in the cooking section. This is one of three recipes that she shared. She prepared this for our lunch group when we worked together. It's good, quick, and very healthy.

Wonderful chili! My vegetarian son loved it. I left out the hot peppers and added a can of white beans along with some zucchini that needed tending to. Took it camping with us and it worked out beautifully. :)
