New World Chili

This chili showcases ingredients that early explorers discovered in the New World—pinto beans, corn, tomatoes, and lima beans. Sprinkle diced avocado and chopped red onion on top for a flavorful garnish. If you don’t have a slow cooker, this recipe is still very easy.

If you use a large skillet or griddle, you can cook more than 2 quesadillas at a time. Offer scoops of guacamole served on leaf lettuce as a side dish, and pass fresh fruit with cookies for dessert.
