Introduction

experimenting in my kitchen. Came up with this variation of black bean chili from "I can't believe its not fattening" cookbook. A tasty high fiber high protein meal solution. Don't let the sodium content scare you, rinsing the canned items can help reduce it--and there are also low sodium options you could substitute too. For example I didn't purchase it this time, but there is an organic canned black bean that is very low in sodium. experimenting in my kitchen.
