Smokey Black Bean Chilli

Gluten Free | Dairy Free

This mid-week Mexican dish is probably one of the quickest and easiest meals you’ll ever make! Using a line of your pantry’s ‘usual suspects’, this tasty dish comes together without having to buy the whole list of ingredients every time. It’s deliciously rich and oh so smokey! With the help of our Beef Bone Broth powder, it not only tastes amazing but is also wonderfully nutritious. This can be made vegan by replacing Beef Bone Broth powder with our Vegetable Broth powder.
