I have been thinking of a chili recipe and this one seems right. black beans go so well with chili and peppers and i love that they incorporated this in the recipe. cannot wait to try this.

I will have to give this a try. We love chili, but have only had the canned chili or made from the box or packets. This probably has a very good flavor with the Italian meatballs. This could be served with either Italian bread or cornbread. Chili would be good for a cold evening.
