  • For heartier chili: In step 3, add in browned, extra-lean ground beef
    or turkey, pieces of cooked chicken, or firm tofu (drained and crumbled).
  • Serve with cornbread or warmed flour and corn tortillas.
  • Use any beans you like, including pinto, kidney, and garbanzos.
  • Make it in advance! Like most soups and stews, chili tastes even better the next day.
