Dinner Prep #LIVE on #JaneUnchained! The Silver Chic Chef Elysabeth Alfano (host of Awesome Vegans with Elysabeth Alfano Podcast/Vlog) makes vegan Super Bowl chili in honor of plant-based football players like Tom Brady.  It is a super delicious, super easy, packed with protein dish that will be sure to have you feeling great enough to make it to the end zone!

 

Elysabeth starts by adding the tomatoes and black beans. This chili not only tastes good but it is also good for you! Elysabeth explains that the beans are full of protein and the vegetables are full of nutrients. Elysabeth uses a yellow pepper to add a pop of color to this dish. She says her special ingredients that make this soup chili is two kinds of paprika and cayenne chili. Elysabeth likes it hot and spicy but don’t add too much cayenne if you’re not a fan of very spicy foods. Elysabeth also adds oregano, basil, and cumin for taste. When the chili is ready, top it off with vegan cheese and or fresh avocado. Try the recipe below, and be the “vegan babe” at all your get-togethers with this chili.
