Chili doesn’t have to have meat in it. Really, it doesn’t! Now, I do love a good chili with beef, but sometimes I want something different: http://damndelicious.net/2013/10/16/quinoa-chili/
The ingredient list is a little long, but with all the canned goods called for, it really doesn’t take all that long to prepare this chili: We had ours with chopped avocado and a dollop of sour cream on top, which my husband swears “saved” the meal. But it truly is good on it’s own. As you can see from the photo, we had tortilla chips with the chili: Since I was out of avocado for the leftovers the next day, I topped the chili with shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream instead – a flavorful and satisfying lunch. Truly, you don’t need the meat to feel full!
