Happy, Healthy Kitchen – Vegetable Chili

Who doesnt love a quick, easy to make and hearty dinner? Chili is one of my favorite go to comfort foods. I created this vegetable chili because I was trying to cram in as many veggies as I could into my meal plan. They are not only filling but good for you. I hope you enjoy this yummy veggie packed chili as much as my family did. Oh, and feel free to add some ground beef or turkey too.
