Northwoods Hearty Chili


Sensational vegetarian chili mix packed with protein-balanced nutrition and flavor. Red beans, bulgur wheat, an array of vegetables (green pepper, onion, garlic, and more) and a just-right, not-hot blend of spices, including garlic and cumin. You add canned tomatoes, and if desired, ground beef.

  • Instructions: Soak beans in 6 cups water, then add 3 15-oz cans tomatoes or tomato sauce and package bulgur, veggies and seasonings. Simmer 2 to 3 hours until done.

  • Add cooked ground beef, if desired.
