Mmmmmm, chili!

It's finally raining here!!  Today really felt like a fall day - drizzling rain and cool temperatures.  A perfect day for a bowl of chili.  Not just any chili though!  I made a vegetarian chili that is loaded with sweet potatoes, bell peppers, onions, carrots, corn and black beans and... Quinoa!  Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is an ancient seed that is used as a whole grain.  This magical little seed is loaded with protein and adds a great texture to loads of dishes.  Uses it in the same way you'd use rice or couscous.  Even my meat-loving fireman loved it!!
