With the big game in mind this week, I thought I would share this super easy chili recipe with you. It’s not only easy to make, but also super nutrient dense. There is ample protein in this recipe. And it stores great for leftovers. It travels well for lunches in a thermos too.

You can easily adjust the heat level to your liking. I tend to make things more on the “MN Nice Spice” level which is what I call mild. You can get this level with just he chili powder. If you want it spicer, then add the cayenne a pinch at a time to get to your heat level. You can swap out the butter beans for white kidney if you can’t find the butter beans. I usually find the butter beans at Whole Foods if you need some assistance finding them.
