A simple chili recipe made with all pantry ingredients.
Author: The Gracious Pantry
1cuptri-color quinoa(regular white works too)
4cupschicken broth(no sugar added, low sodium is best)
28oz.canned diced tomatoes(fire roasted or regular)
30oz.canned black beans(drained and rinsed)
salt and pepperto taste
1lb.browned, ground turkey or beef
Rinse your quinoa in a fine-meshed sieve. Even if the package says it's pre-rinsed, you'll still want to rinse it to avoid any off-putting flavors. Rinse it really well!
Add all your ingredients (including any additions you want to add) to a large pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for about 20 minutes (or however long your quinoa package instructs).
Add any toppings or mix-ins (mentioned in my blog post) and serve.
