Black Bean Sausage Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: My entire family urged me to send in this recipe! I came up with it one day when I wasn't sure what to do with a can of black beans I had. I just threw a bunch of stuff together, and out came a new chili that's become our favorite. My husband always tells me that I'm the world's best cook. That's nice, since he's the best husband in the world! Our four children are ages 6, 4, 2 and 1. -Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon

This was good but it is more like a unique pasta sauce. Very much a tomato base recipe. I served this with Romaine Salad with Avocado Dressing.
