This week, summer seems to be lifting it’s hold on Atlanta. This week, the weather forecast doesn’t seem to have any of those 90+ degree days when the humidity is so high that sweat trickles down your back even when you are just standing there, in the shade, with a limoncello popsicle in hand. Which leaves me a bit blue. Because, I do so love those steamy, sweaty, summer days down here in the south. After that confession, I bet you’re thinking I’m a tad bit batty. And, you might be right…
But, y’all, I won’t be blue for long because the FOODS of fall are coming…
I cannot wait to dig into those fall foods that I have neglected to enjoy this summer… foods like rich and crusty pies, scrumptious chocolate and cookie butter bakes, luscious baked dips, mouthwatering pumpkin cakes, creamy and indulgent soups and hearty chili like this Easy Spicy Sweet Vegetarian Mango Chili. Now, you might be thinking I’m battier than I was a few sentences ago by using “vegetarian” and “hearty” in one sentence along with chili… but, y’all have gotta try this to see how hearty this Mango Chili really is.
I made this chili as an entry to the #ChooseMyChili Challenge that Sprouts Farmer’s Market is sponsoring, on a weekend when my daughter came home to visit. Now, when I stopped by Sprouts to pick up all the ingredients for this chili, I also picked up a baguette. My daughter simply LOVES the baked breads in the Sprouts Bakery Section and so I figured she would love to have a baguette to sop up the last dredges of this chili. But, after she almost licked the bowl clean, she put her baguette pieces away as she said she was just too full after eating a bowl of this Easy Vegetarian Mango Chili that was only topped with cilantro. Not only is the heartiness of this Easy Vegetarian Mango Chili amped up with hearty beans, veggies and fruit, but it’s flavor is amped up with Simply Organic’s cumin, coriander and paprika! And the best part is, if you happen to have leftovers, this chili just seems to get better with age… quite like Milo Ventimiglia from This is Us!
