Is it cold where you are?

As I write this we’re smack dab in the middle of a winter storm that seems like it will never end--rain, cold, and more rain.

The bright side of all this cold weather is that it’s the perfect time of year for a big, steaming bowl of chili.

Don’t you think?

This version just so happens to be meat-free, but is still very hearty and totally satisfying.

Plus, prep couldn’t be simpler.

All you need is a handful of pantry staples thrown together in a slow cooker or electric pressure cooker, and you’re all set.

In keeping with the simplified theme, this recipe uses only five ingredients (love that!), but if you happen to have smoked paprika on hand I recommend adding that in, too.

It lends a smoky flavor in the background, and pairs really well with the sweetness of the potatoes and savory flavor of the black beans.

I also highly recommend serving this with allllllllllll the toppings, especially a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

I hope you’ll make this one soon. If you do, be sure to share it on Instagram and tag me at @realfoodwholelife so I can see.
