Really Good Quick Two Bean Chili (Gluten-Free)

In my house, the chilly appearance of fall means stews, soups and chilies simmering on the stove. Fall is when I love making dishes that not only help to warm the house, but also fill it with delicious aromas that tease my nose until dinner time.

Chili is one of my favorite things to make in fall. Below is a recipe for a rich, delicious chili that will delight your nose as it cooks, and delight yourself, friends and family when it's time to eat. It is easy to make, keeps well in the fridge or freezer, and makes a great main dish, or a great side for a game day or the family visit pot-luck.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onions and garlic about 3-5 minutes, until onions are clear, adding green chills and habanero during last 2 minutes.

Remove the onions, garlic and peppers from the heat and add them to the pot with the ground beef, and set the heat to medium. Add habanero halves.

Add the kidney beans and tomato sauce to the beef mixture, and season with chili powder, salt, garlic salt and hot pepper sauce. Bring to a simmer, and adjust seasonings to taste if necessary.

Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.

When it's done, remove the habanero pieces and discard. Serve chili with buttered gluten-free cornbread or other favorite gluten-free bread.

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...
