Vegetarian Three Bean Chili

Vegetarian Three Bean Chili,Today’s recipe is from a pamphlet that we get every month from our apartment office.I have collected all of them because of the recipe portion.Sometimes it feels like crazy to collect the package cuttings,the wrappers,the magazine pages and many more things where we found these special recipes.Well that’s the weird but fun part of being a food blogger.


My elder one’s book shelf is almost full of my books and paper cuttings folders and sometimes she would ask mamma this is my book shelf right with a question mark.Actually a portion of her room has become my photography studio and that is what’s annoying her along with the book shelf thing.Well,we do not have too much space in the apartment and we should share all things until then ,I persuade her by telling her this.It’s a hard job.

The vegetarian three bean chili is very easy to make and taste awesome.This recipe is for CCChallenge for first week of the month of march.
