Summer used to be my favorite season. The swimming pool, the beach, the hot sunshine, and the bikinis. Now that I am a mother, you’d never know I even lived through the summer if you looked at my paste-y white legs. Now I spend my entire summer in the shade at the swimming pool, under the umbrella at the beach slathering sunscreen onto tiny humans, and making sure my swimsuit cover-up isn’t showing too much skin when I get up to pull a soda out of the cooler.
I feel like I’ve grown up, moved on from summer, and graduated to loving the Fall. I mean honestly, could a pumpkin look any cuter? I’ve come to appreciate the cooler weather, the scarves, and the comfort food. One of my favorite hearty Fall fill-yer-belly meals is chili, and there is nothing better than the Chipotle Chocolate Chili I make from Our Best Bites. This recipe is a sure crowd pleaser that feeds lots of people or gives you plenty of left overs to savor again the next day. One of the secret ingredients: S&W Beans! I know I can always count on high quality beans with S&W because they’ve been delivering premium quality for over 120 years.
S&W Beans are so easy and convenient to use. I love the organic and less sodium options! I do my best to make sure my family is fed with the very best ingredients available, and I know I will always get that when I use S&W Beans. Not to mention, black beans make the perfect finger food for little fingers. They look yummy and are inviting to toddlers. All moms know that it has to look appealing before those chubby little fingers even give them a chance. I also love to toss them into my 2nd grader’s lunch box for quick protein and fiber; the perfect combo for filling those little bellies.
Make sure to get the whole recipe from Our Best Bites, but this is what I do to make the best chili you’ll ever have in your life:
I start by browning the ground turkey, and then I add in peppers and onions.
Next, I add in all the spices to stack on the flavor.
Then the BEANS! S&W Beans always delivers high quality that I know I can trust when I make this chili. It’s the most asked for dinner at our house by far, so the beans have to be up to standard 🙂
Mix it all together and Viola! Chipotle Chocolate Chili. Your family will be thanking you.
Make sure to use S&W Beans when you make it! It’s the little things that make a big difference. Enjoy!
