Probably the most stressful thing about chili is wondering if all the time and energy you spent on those spices and ingredients… will actually turn out.
The last thing you want after all that effort is a wasted pot of chili. Ugh! So today, let me share how to take the stress out of veggie chili!
This post is happily sponsored by Pure Texan Chili – championship chili you can make at home!
Keep it fun.
Think about all the times that you’ve been to someone’s home, watching the game, lounging around, playing cards, or binge-watching Netflix.
Was chili involved?
If it wasn’t, it should’ve been! Chili is fun food!
Keep it simple.
Instead of working about the right ratio of all the ingredients, find a recipe that works, and memorize it by heart by making it over and over again.
Similar to having that go-to Taco Tuesday meal or that Sunday Roasted Chicken dinner, chili is one of those stress-free and simple meals that we all should learn how to do without thinking.
The best way to keep meals stress-free is to keep simple ingredients always at your fingertips. Stock the basics in your pantry: canned beans, tomato sauce and chili mix.
Have you heard of Pure Texan Chili?
At the urging of friends, Alan and Susan Dean decided to make their award-winning championship chili available to everyone by packaging and selling their Pure Texan Chili spice blend!
They sell their Pure Texan Chili packets online (and on amazon) and what I particularly love about them is that they don’t get fancy with tons of product line extensions.
Alan and Susan stick with their chili mix because their mix is a winner.
Because they keep it simple… we can keep it simple.
Keep it healthy and delicious.
You’ll find tons of recipes created by Alan on their website. Since it’s fall and the cool weather is here to stay for a while, I decided to check out their Veggie Chili recipe.
The ingredients for this veggie chili recipe are simple and healthy. We’re talking sweet potatoes, cauliflower, squash, black beans, tomato sauce, water, and yep, you guessed it! One packet of Pure Texan Chili mix.
Next time I’m adding a can of kidney beans and using a little less of the chili mix. That way I can either double the recipe or save half the package for another bowl of chili! Either way, I’m keeping this mix on hand and so should you. Here’s the link to buy some for your pantry.
What are some of your favorite chili toppings?
Stay warm, happy, and remember to have a little fun with your food.
