“From http://feedyourfamily.blogspot.com This meatless chili makes a fantastic main course; it satisfies my comfort-food cravings, but is a much healthier alternative to traditional chili. Quinoa is packed with protein and amino acids - Wikipedia calls it a "complete protein source." We love this chili with half an avocado or some light sour cream, and I double the cayenne pepper because I like it hot! Enjoy!”
