Celebrate National Chilli Day with this Three Bean Vegan Chilli Recipe

February 25th is National Chili Day, and Nature’s Emporium wants to help you celebrate! Chilli can be packed with various nutrients and a delicious, warming food to reach during the colder months.

Chillis usually contain chillies, peppers and beans – all excellent sources of fibre. Fibre works to boost your metabolism, slows the rate at which sugar is absorbed in your body, and supports your heart’s health.

Our tasty Three Bean Vegan Chilli can be made at home. Suppose you aren’t in the mood for cooking this February 28th or prefer to have meat in your chilli. In that case, Nature’s Emporium also sells a pre-made turkey chilli that will be sure to hit the spot!
