Three Bean Chili
for everyone.
serves 6 to 8

This is so simple and quick to make. Using canned beans makes it fast and decent. Using dried beans to start will be better but take a day to cook.

Using a jar of salsa instead of crushed tomatoes, adds a shortcut to flavor, but not necessary. Chili is one the great dishes where if you stay within the "lines" it will always be tasty. Stray to far and it might get to hot or not flavorful at all.

This started as a flavorful vegetarian chile with the option of adding ground beef if you feel inclined.
