The BEST Garden Veggie + Beef Chili ๐Ÿซ‘๐Ÿซ˜๐Ÿ…

We’re making a BIG Ole pot of flavor-packed chili for the week and using all those fresh garden tomatoes and peppers that are ripe right now!

I absolutely adore chili and it’s a perfect meal this time of year as the weather starts to cool down.

A big pot on the stovetop for football parties or just a weeknight meal. It’s great because it stays good for hours on the stove while everyone in the family makes it home at different times of the evening during the busy school season.

It takes maybe 20 minutes to throw together then we let it simmer for at least an hour (but really as long as you want!) to get those flavors to meld and deepen.

Chili is only better the next day too! The flavor just gets tastier.

I also LOVE that this can be very budget-friendly if you shop the sales. It’s great to have some leftovers for future lunches and chili freezes very well.
๐Ÿ–Homemade Roasted Beef Bone Broth:

โžก๏ธ Want to cook your own dry beans at home? Here’s how:

Beans are loaded with good-for-your-gut fiber, something a lot of us struggle to get enough of.

โค๏ธ They have been linked with health benefits including lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and a lower risk of heart disease, and they also can help keep you feeling fuller longer.

โžก No matter what kind of legume youโ€™re preparing, itโ€™s important to make sure they are fully cooked before you eat them because the uncooked version contains โ€œantinutrients,โ€ which can affect both your digestive system and the absorption of other nutrients.

๐Ÿฅ˜ Enjoy beans in soups and stews, in salads, or in chili!
