Last night decided to throw together a veggie chili for dinner. This green chili is loaded with green chile.

I convinced my boyfriend to throw together some biscuits while I invented the chili and… voilà! What a meal.

While cooking the meal, we had a low cabinet open. I shut it, and about 15 minutes later our kitten came busting out of the cabinet! He’d been in there the whole time and didn’t make a sound.

Simmer with 1 can of rinsed pinto beans, 1 can of rinsed kidney beans, and 1/2 a can of black beans. We use Goya beans .

Green chile is something I discovered in New Mexico, and I cannot get enough! We have a 6-pack case of these massive 72 oz jars in my cabinet right now! Many grocery stores will have small cans of green chile, but nothing compares to a jar of 505 diced flame roasted green chile. Buy some and try it!

Enjoy with good company and a cold beverage… the “fire extinguisher” for the green chile, if you will!
