Bell peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime add fresh flavors to this Hearty Pepper Chili; it’s filled with sausage, beans, and an abundance of vegetables. My entire family gave this meal two thumbs up. I’ve made this chili a couple more times already, just to have some stashed in the freezer for easy lunches.
My kids have a well known and long lasting love for chili. So, when BUSH’S® Beans asked if I’d create a recipe for them, I jumped at the chance. My middle son, Ben, would probably eat chili for every meal of his eleven-year-old life if I gave him that option. So, when he saw me making this chili, I had a very willing helper at my elbows.
As this Hearty Pepper Chili was simmering in the kitchen, the other two boys wandered downstairs with the words “something smells like chili” and “please, please, please say that chili is for our lunch, Mom.”
I loaded this recipe with so many vegetables, I wasn’t 100% sure how well that might go over with them. Fortunately, they went crazy over the new recipe. Everything from “this tastes so fresh and I love the cilantro and lime” from my oldest to “I don’t know what’s different, but these bell peppers are great, Mom” from the youngest.
Ben declared this chili the best one I’ve made in a long long time and said that we should make chili this way every time. I’m calling this a huge win for fresh vegetables and easy dinners.
Kitchen Tip: I use this pot when making this recipe.
