Black Bean Garden Chili

I really wish I had a picture of this one.

The color of this chili turned out to be such a pretty shade of dark red/black.

Also, I feel pretty fortunate I have Becca to provide names for my food (let’s be honest, do you think I came up with sweet potato latke on my own?) because every time she does it inspires me to do something different.  Case in point:  I hadn’t thought of this dish as chili but when she called it that I decided to put some chipotle chili powder in the soup and that was a marvelous touch to an already tasty soup.

Seriously, it’s that easy and a totally tunable recipe depending on your tastes.
