Kale and Bean Chili!

Karina Alcala


This chili/soup si so good and flavorful but not only that it is so good for you. Ok so I wanted to make my lentil chili but I had no lentils lol. I had some kale in the fridge and I said why not. Boy I had no idea how delicious this was going to be. Perfect for a cold day warms up your whole body. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
