I’m back with the second installment of Weeknight Winner Wednesdays! This edition features a high-fiber, flavourful meatless chili that you can have on the table in about two shakes (that’s twenty minutes) with one simple make-ahead ingredient. No sweating over a simmering pot for hours. And with high-fiber beans stealing the show, no one will miss the meat in this vegetarian, low-fat chili. YOU control the heat, so you can make this just as hot (or not) as you like. This is another nutritious and delicious dish you (and your family) are sure to love.
Well, hello! I’m so excited to share this simple but delicious recipe with you! “But wait, you crazy Canuck,” you say, “what do YOU know about Southwestern cuisine?” Fair enough – as a pale-skinned, Canadian gringa, probably less than most. But I do know that any meal featuring corn, black beans, tomatoes, lime and spices screams Southwestern to me, and after making this recipe, I think it will make you a believer, too. It’s bursting with fresh flavours (but the sneaky secret is that you can get away with using canned goods so you can experience flavours of the Southwest all year ’round) and is a quick family favourite. Bonus: there’s only one dish, so prep is fast and easy and clean-up is, too!
