Newbie – Three Bean Chili


    This past week has been oh so busy for our family; we have relocated to a new state (Texas), changed schools, and left so many friends behind while trying to make new ones. The kids are finally registered and attending their new school and the house is about half unpacked (and it will prob stay that way while we house hunt!) Needless to say, we are busy and dinner time has been sneaking up on me too quickly! Last night we got home around 5:30pm after a long day and we were all very hungry. I have not yet hit up the local grocery to load up the fridge (that arrived Thursday), so we went to the pantry. This is a the perfect time and place for canned goods!

Three Bean Chili


4 pre-baked potatoes (or microwave them quick while the beans cook)

1 cup pre cooked quinoa (I try to keep a few cups cooked in my fridge for moments just like this)

1 can black beans

1 can kidney beans

1 can chipotle pinto beans

1 can diced tomatoes

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

2-3 green onions, chopped

1/2 lime for juice ( 1-2 tbsp lime juice)

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp onion powder

 Sprinkle with cumin to taste


Chop baked potatoes into small cubes and combine with all ingredients into a large pot. Heat on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until desired heat. Enjoy!
