I love chili!! All kinds of chili. I decided to make up my own version based on what I had in my fridge today. For the record, this is my go to method of cooking. I went to the farmer’s market in Union Square this week and picked out some amazing ingredients. I highly recommend visiting your local farmer’s market. Farmer’s markets are a great way to know what is in season, while providing fresh and healthy food free of hormones and chemicals. This is now one of my favorite recipes and I literally just made it up!! This meal is warm, spicy and comforting on a rainy day like today. Grab a bowl and eat alone or pour on top of delicious yellow brown rice!
