My youngsters name this Italian chili and the identify has completely caught. It’s a chili within the sense that it’s tomato-based and has a number of beans, however it goes Italian with the pasta sauce, garlic and oregano. It jogs my memory of a heartier minestrone soup.
I really like this one for 2 causes: 1) it feeds a giant crowd and a couple of) it’s principally a dump and stir recipe. Simple peasy. And if it’s chilly in your neck of the woods, this is the proper soup to heat you up.
Be happy to substitute any of the beans with varieties you want higher. I’ve one kiddo who will pick each single kidney bean within the pot, so typically I double up on the Nice Northerns. Make it your personal 😉
