How to Make Three Bean Chili Chowder


  1. Saute bell pepper and onion in oil until softened. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer. Serve when hot.
  2. I like to serve with corn bread, and garnish with some chopped green onions, shredded cheese, and sour cream.
  3. You can make this as spicy as your family likes by using mild, medium, or hot salsa/picante! I usually use pinto beans, black beans, and kidney beans, but you can vary to your tastes.
