This Caribbean Black Bean Chili recipe is built on pantry staples and is ready in about thirty minutes. There is a good chance you have all the ingredients already. It is perfect for a cold winter day to fill your belly without requiring a lot of time cooking or prepping.
My husband isn’t a huge bean fan but he does like black bean soup so I decided to brave a black bean chili with the same flavors. I just had some for lunch and it was amazing so I’m going to hope he agrees. Or maybe I’ll hope he doesn’t so I can claim all the leftovers….
This is my first E recipe ever. When I started THM I was a veteran to low carb meals having been on a variety of low carb diets over the years. But Es were more of a challenge. When I did paleo/Whole30 I ate a good amount of carbs but I was used to drenching my sweet potatoes in coconut oil so eating carbs without fat was new.
This is vegetarian, dairy free, gluten free, grain free, and a THM E.
