As the weather turns cooler it is so important to eat rich, nutritious, and warming foods. Warming foods can mean both foods that are physically warm, and foods that are filled with warming spices that help warm us on the inside (hot peppers, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, cardamom etc.). This chili fits the bill for both! Not to mention also being … [Read more...]
