The Polar Vortex is baaaa-aaack. So I made it some chili (vegetarian, obvi). In my opinion, it’s what to eat when it’s freezing.
You can find my original recipe (a term I use lightly, mostly because it’s just like… sauté onions and garlic, add beans, add tomatoes, add whatever spices you have on hand, simmer, eat) here: vegetarian chili for lazy people.
I topped today’s piping hot bowl with a handful of tortilla chips, some Fire Roasted Corn + Black Bean Salsa from Nola’s Fresh Foods. Nola’s is made minutes from our place in Southie and is a 2015 Martha Stewart American Made award winner. After receiving a complimentary sample a few weeks ago (delivered to my doorstep, no less), their salsa keeps ending up in our shopping cart.
As for the lime wedge and the useless miniature wooden spoon… they’re mostly there because chili looks like, you know… chili. And I wanted to distract you from this. Did it work?
But seriously. Make yourself a bowl.
