Cat’s Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

My friend Cathryn had me over for dinner recently. She knows about my dietary restrictions, and like the amazing hostess she is, was more than accommodating with her menu!

She made a delicious spicy black bean chili, and it was so great snagged the recipe to share! It took less than 30 minutes to prep and cook, and is packed full of flavor!

This is an incredibly easy fall/winter dish. Enjoy!
