This week for #FoodieFriday we are featuring another recipe from the kitchen of our wine maker Amanda. You may not know that Amanda was a vegetarian for 13 years, and still likes to cook a lot of meatless dishes. This recipe for Black Bean Vegetarian Chili is another one of her favorites.
As we approach the colder weather there is nothing like curling up with a big bowl of warm & spicy chili. A fun way to spice up a bowl of chili is to add a dash of our Jalapeño Wine! This recipe is fairly spicy on it’s own and will not require a lot of additional spice though. When pairing a wine with this chili recipe or any other remember to pick a medium body red. Choose a red that will be able to balance well with the chili but not get drowned out by the flavors of the chili and hold its own flavor. For example our Foch or Marquette would pair perfectly with this chili recipe. They have black pepper spice but also some fruity notes to them that will compliment the tomatoes and spices in the chili.
