Black Bean & Quinoa Chilli

This black bean and quinoa chilli makes for a filling and nutritious meal. If it’s autumn, make a big pot because it is perfect for those cozy nights and if it’s winter then it will warm you up. The best part is, that this dish is a full meal in itself. You don’t need any bread/roti/pasta to go with it. Take it to your next pot luck and you will know you have a crowd pleaser!

Jovi's Notes

I used my favourite Artisan Grains brand of quinoa but feel free to use whatever is easily available.

I used Biona Organic Black Beans for this dish.
