Expert Tips

  • Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas or ceci peas, have 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and only 1 gram of fat per 1/2 cup. They combine well with tomatoes and can be used as a substitute for other dried beans.
  • Make the chili up to two days in advance and refrigerate it. The flavors will blend and intensify as the chili sits. Reheat it over low heat.
  • For a party, set out the chili with bowls of add-your-own toppings, such as grated Jack cheese, minced onion, chopped jalapeños, sour cream (or yogurt), chopped fresh cilantro, hot pepper sauce and diced tomatoes.
