Lentil Chili

A neighbor brought me a bowl of this chili one winter day, and asked me to taste it. It was the first time she had made it, and needed a second opinion.

It was so delicious, I asked her for the recipe. I make it often, as I love the ingredients, and the chili is packed with protein, and is very satisfying.
