Polka Dot Chili

Okay, seriously, I’m running out of names for these different kinds of chili.  I went with polka dot for this because it has black beans in an otherwise SUPPOSED to be white chili.  But, well, you can see it came out more brown.  Looks aside, though, this was a keeper, one of the first white chilis that hubs will take instead of a traditional beef chili.  Serves 4.  Calories 523.08; Total Fat 12.02g

  1. Hi Kate! I made your black bean recipe for Cinco de Mayo. Delicious! Especially with 2 teen boys– they gobbled it up. I used it as a filling in soft tacos, but I ate mine over brown rice. Loved it. Thank You!
    This chili looks good for a cool spring day like we’re having today here in GA.

  2. I like chili thats hearty but my husband does not like beans in his chili. I think without beans it is just a big blob of meat with sauce. I will keep this recipe for myself when he is out hunting this fall-love the mixture of beans and the cloves. Buzzed it.
