Pineapple Chili

Right now, Ohio is in a "transitional phase" in regards to the weather. It's spring, so it's rainy and humid, but winter is still hanging on a little bit and lending a chill to the air. This chili, which Jessie mentioned in her recent meal planning, is the perfect way to bridge the two seasons. Yes, you're eating chili in the springtime, which seems wrong, but it has pineapple in it. And pineapple screams spring. So it's a nice concession.

Joe and I both absolutely loved this chili. It takes no time at all to come together, and I'm consistenly amazed at how so few ingredients and such a simple recipe can produce something so delicious. I decided to use black beans instead of pinto beans because I prefer them, and because I have to be me, I garnished the chili with some cilantro.

I served this with some amazing corn bread I'll post about soon. This is a delicious lighter alternative to my heavy winter chili. So simple, so affordable, and so good. Thanks so much for sharing this one, Jessie!
