Reviews for Black Bean Sausage Chili
"Best chili recipe! My husband loves sausage so I tried it at home and it was a sucess. I had a casino party at the house and decided to incorporate this dish to the menu. Also, I cooked steamed white rice on the side, zero, nada, left!!! I had to share the recipe with at least 10 of the attendees! Thank you for sharing!"
