Yellow Tomato Black Bean Chili

When the autumn season is near that makes me think of football and when I think football food, I think chili. This week’s featured recipe is our YELLOW TOMATO BLACK BEAN CHILI. Just as the title suggests, this dish has yellow tomatoes, and black beans but also red and green bell pepper, onion, jalapeno, and plant-based burger. Each spoonful is the perfect blend of fresh mild tomato flavor with a little kick of jalapeno heat. This chili is so so so good– I’m really looking forward to crashing on the couch with a bowl of this chili, a side of garlic toast, and a local football game on the tv! Come to think of it– the colors of this bowl are black and yellow. Guess, we know what team we’re kicking the season off with. Football game or not, this chili is delicious anytime. So, let’s hop to it!
