I haven't been eating any meat lately so have been trolling the internet for good vegetarian recipes. I came across this chili recipe from realsimple.com and had to share it with you all! It was quick and easy to make and tasted absolutely delicious. Definitely hit the spot on a cold and snowy day here in Boston!
