Is there anything better than a steaming bowl of soup or chili in the winter? It's just good comfort food that I try to make for dinner at least once a week. It's filling and low in fat, so it's also good for weight loss resolutions many of us are trying to stick to this time of year. Last week I made my favorite veggie soup, so I decided to make a pot of chili this week. I wasn't wanting something that was overly tomato based since we've had a lot of pasta recently, so I decided that this Spicy White Bean Chili from Golden Blossom Honey sounded like a great option.
I loved this recipe because it doesn't have to simmer on the stove for hours like traditional chili does. From start to finish, I had it completed in under 20 minutes, making it a fabulous recipe to keep on hand for busy weeknights. The fire roasted tomatoes and spicy sausage gave the chili a nice kick of heat, but since the honey was added in, it wasn't unbearably hot because the honey helped tone down the heat and added a touch of sweetness to the dish. Add in a side of cornbread and you have a hearty meal that's perfect for a cold winter evening.
