I absolutely love black bean chili and this is my favorite way to make it. Without any meat, because you really don’t need it. 

Mexican Black Bean Chili

Now there are so many black bean chili or soup recipes out there and almost all call for some type of meat protein in it. However, if done right you really don’t need meat for black bean chili, because one cup of black beans provides 15.2 grams of protein.

Plus black beans are also a good source of antioxidants making this one of the healthiest chili recipes around.

Did you know that the fiber in black beans actually helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease? Well if that is not more reason enough to omit the meat and go Vegetarian tonight, I don’t know what is!

I like to serve fresh jalapenos on-top this chili before serving. So if you have small kids or those who can’t handle the heat, you can omit the fresh jalapenos at the end. You can cook this on the stove top or in your slow cooker, both methods work great. I hope you give this a try because it’s super delicious!

Note: I like to use “Better than Bouillon” Chicken stock. We buy ours from Costco, so instead of using 8 cups of liquid Chicken Stock, we use 3 tbsp of that instead. If your interested in trying it out, the link is below.
