Recipe: Rainbow Veggie Chili

by Joanna

Time for another recipe! I ran across this gem on Additionally, they offer a great healthy recipe section on their website that’s worth checking out.

This chili is great year-round and is a wonderful source of a, well, rainbow of veggies! I would recommend making some fresh bread machine oat bread to serve alongside this dish. What a great, hearty dinner!
