Thanks for "playing with your food"

It's always a thrill when one of my clients gives me accolades, especially when they take the time to style and photograph a dish that I made for them.  This chili is convenient, packed with nutrition and easy to eat on the go or while standing over the kitchen sink, but it's even better enjoyed while taking the time to sit down and savor all of the goodness in this bowl.  We should all take a few minutes out of our busy days to enjoy a nice meal.  It is good for your digestion, not to mention your spirit; so always remember slow down and make every plate something to be passionate about!

Cooking Instructions
