    Mmm, another fantastic greens-and-beans dish! I never buy Swiss chard because I just don’t know what to do with it, but this looks like a great starting point now.

  6. What a great chili redux. I always stick with the same tomato base and bean/meat fillings. Gotta give this a try!

  7. So true:) This looks like total comfort food. I really feel for vegetarians and those with restricted diets at celebrations. If you came over for Thanks Giving, I’d make something vegetarian.

  22. Beautiful! You are the queen of squash. Delicious and nutritious.

  23. Candace says:

    I don’t even know what cranberry beans are; but this is a beautiful bowl of goodness. You are right about the addition of bacon and such to everything in the fall. Guilty as charged…bacon, prosciutto and now pancetta. You seriously called me out on that one. Somehow I don’t think I would miss the meat in this chili though. I’m certainly willing to try. It looks absolutely delicious!

  24. This just looks like Really. Good. Food. Who needs meat when you’ve got this? 🙂

  25. I now know why I keep coming back to your space. I just learn a new word today, your posts offer vision therapy! Now I can move away from the boring chilli I make always. Your version sound so much more interesting.
