One-Pan White Bean Chili
Fast! Perfect weeknight meal & tastes even better the next day!
Easiest, tastiest chili recipe!
Very interchangeable – add or remove the veggies to your preference.
This is a flavorful, traditional cold weather chili that I add zucchini & spinach (or anything I have on hand – throw it in!), for the nutrition.
My kids love the taste + I love that they are getting a serving of veggies!
You can also double the recipe for food prep! It freezes well!
