Calico Chili

There are all kinds of beans out there that can be added to many dishes, different than the usual bean you might add to a favorite recipe.  Basically, when you make your regular favorite chili you add at least three variety of beans.  I added kidney beans, black beans, and pinto beans, whatever you might have in your pantry.

This is a semi-homemade chili, I was craving chili and didn’t feel like standing in the kitchen preparing it.  Soooo, I went in the pantry and located the canned chili in the back, where the food is that I usually reserve for my hurricane season box…
