This is what my day off looked like
{If you add in D. & Richelle into the mix}

Doesn't that soup look rad?
This was a recipe my mother-in-law gave to me & it is one of the many reasons I love her.
Here's the recipe:

Black Bean Chili
What You'll Need:
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 tsp crushed garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 4 tsp oregano
  • 4 tsp cumin seed
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2- 14oz cans of veggie broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded & diced
Sautee onions in olive oil, once tender, add garlic- Mix in chili powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, paprika, cayenne pepper and cook together for about 5 minutes.
Add broth, tomatoes, jalapeño, beans & bring to a boil.
Reduce heat & cook for 45 minutes.
Uncover and cook until beans are tender and chili has thickened. 
Pour in bowl, add sour  cream & cilantro, & enjoy!

I guarantee this will become your next fall favorite.

  1. Drooling over that first picture! What are those anyway? Are they donuts? Any whoo they look delicious. Ooooh Black Bean Chili needs to happen around here soon. I wonder if I could throw that all in the crockpot? Ok I'm rambling! Cute blog!

  2. If it works in the crockpot, idk why it wouldn't :), let me know. :D i had to pin this bc it is so delish looking.

  3. The donuts are ones I make from pillsbury biscuits with a homemade buttercream frosting- They are delish!

    & I'm sure it could work in a crockpot-- I've never tried it, but that would be a great idea && it really is as great as it looks-- it's one of D's favorites! :)

  4. You've got me drooling. I'm honestly not a vegetarian, but I often don't eat meat for days or have it once a day. The cafeteria at PBA has a vegan line, and that just tends to be the freshest food. Love it. Some day when I can give up chicken I'll make the transition. For now I enjoy tofu a few times a week or replace some version of legumes for the protein in my meal.

    I bet you wanted to know all that. :]

    In other news, you look great! Your smile is electric and ohio looks good on you. Tell Ash hey next time you see her!

  5. Travis, I love it! I always recommend to people that they don't necessarily need to go vegetarian just because I chose to, but that I definitely encourage them to try it a few times a week- it saves money and it's fun to try something new and move out of your comfort zone!

    I'll make sure to tell Ash & I'm excited to read your blog! I just found it today :)
