Make it a Meal: Serve with a crispy green salad and whole wheat tortilla on the side.

Talking Points: Some chili recipes don’t call for beans, but beans add a lot of nutrition to each serving. Kidney beans are legumes, which are considered part of both the vegetable and the protein food groups. They are also a good source of complex carbohydrates, folate and iron and are also low in fat.
