Description

I needed to cook something healthy and perfect for these cold winter nights. I had quinoa, kale, and sweet potato on hand, and I decided to turn it into a chilli. Who doesn’t love chilli on a cold winter night? I have put some of the best superfoods in this recipe, and I even added a little bit of highly nutritious cacao powder, but don’t fret, you won’t be eating chocolate chilli. The cheese is the topping on the cake in this recipe. I tried avoiding the cheese, but when I added the cheese, OMG! So tasty! Enjoy! :)
