Hearty & very easy, great for an unseasonably cold & rainy day. Made to recipe non-vegetarian only because we were using what we had on hand (pork chorizo sub for meatless & chicken broth sub for water). Also blackened the poblano over flame, peeled then seeded & chopped. Served with wedges of cheese quesadilla. Pretty good.
White Bean and Hominy Chili
Vegetarian chipotle sausage packs quite a punch, adding savory depth to the entire pot.
