Vegetarian Black Bean Chili


"A spicy chili if you want it to be, depending on how much chili and curry powder you add. Not your typical chili. Best if left to cool and then reheated. Serve with brown rice."

This was really very good and different. I would definitely make this again. Goes well with whole wheat rolls.
