Beans have the Lead in Winter Chili Choices
By Heather Boerner
When the days get short and the cold and damp make me feel sniffly, I crave something hearty, something to warm me through the long nights and thick fog of San Francisco. Winter used to be a chance for me to break out my Texas-born grandmother’s recipe: Chicken-fried Steak.
But today, I head a different direction. I still get the warmth and coziness, but with a lot less artery-clogging saturated fat. My secret weapon? Beans.
