Today I am sharing with you my absolute favorite chili recipe! Friends I share with you my Triple Bean Chili.! I have slowly been adjusting my chili recipe for a while now. This is now my go-to recipe for hearty healthy chili that has a wonderful flavor. When I say healthy, don’t think boring- think FLAVORFUL!

When you live in a cold-weather state you get pretty good at comfort food! I think you will really, really like this chili once you try it. If you’re not a bean enthusiast simply cut back on the beans. This chili is a one-bowl chili. After one bowl most people are full!

Keep in mind, you can always serve this Triple Bean Chili over rice, or noodles if you prefer. Or any other way that makes you happy!

You will need to allow a little extra time for the chili  to simmer, about 30 minutes. Remember the longer it simmers the better the flavor will be!

Enjoy and stay warm!

The top picture photographed a little dark, but the chili really isn’t that dark. It’s not a bright red chili because of black bean & corn salsa, however if you prefer a redder chili simply use a red salsa. :)

My Triple Chocolate Cookies are a scrumptious combination of three types of chocolate that make for one great cookie!

Sometimes there’s just nothing better than a good moist fudgy, chocolatey cookie!

I make lots of different cookies all year long, but there’s always something kind of special about a good chocolate cookie. A good chocolate cookie seems to be hard to find, and is always a real treat.

So what makes these cookies so good?

In a nutshell, there are three different kinds of chocolate in this cookie and it’s the combinations of chocolate flavors that makes this cookie so darn good!

Enjoy!

If you’re not a fan of white chocolate, have no fear. The white chocolate helps create a nice balance of flavors in this cookies. In other words, white chocolate is not the dominant flavor in these cookies.

The wonderful fudgy, chocolatey flavor from the cocoa powder and chocolate chips is the flavor you will enjoy. :)

tcc_DSNC2148So as you can see there are three types of chocolate that go into these cookies – natural cocoa powder, white chocolate chips and semi sweet chocolate chips.

I used miniature chocolate chips, but feel free to use mini or regular size semi sweet chocolate chips.
