Turkey & Adzuki Bean Chili

 

Turkey & Adzuki Bean ChiliOne of my favourite recipes to experiment with is Chili. It is so versatile. You can add any ingredients to make a scrumptious Chili. The main ingredient is some type of bean; afte that it’s all up to the cook. Last night, I tried Adzuki Beans as my bean base for my newest Chili. According to DR.OZ, Adzuki Beans are great for people who want to keep trim. This bean is loaded with protein; 19.60 g in 1 cup. Apparently, the body only absorbs half of the calories because of it’s high protein content. Rafael protested whilst eating the Chili, “This is your best recipe ever!” Give it a try and let me know what you think.
