I’ve decided I’m going to start a new routine just for YOU!
“What’s Cookin’ Wednesdays” is here!!
Every Wednesday make sure you come over to my blog to see my latest and greatest recipes, that are of course extremely healthy and easy!
What’s Cookin’ this Wednesday? CHILI!!!!!!
I could… and I do… eat this stuff all day for a week. PLUS it’s so convenient just making a big batch and having it on hand to eat all week so no need to cook, prep or plan. You can also make a super big batch and freeze some of it to have “fast food” on hand when your down to noodles and ketchup.
This version is vegan gluten free dairy free sugar free and nut free, aka free of all possible allergens, however it is FREAKING DELICIOUS! Even for you beefy men out there, I guarantee it’ll still knock your socks off.
It’s everything you want on a chilly fall day, hearty, warm, sweet, savory, and delicious!
