Chili Complements

Chili is a true one-dish meal. It contains protein, vegetables, fiber and loads of flavor. But even the most Spartan of us likes a little variety on the table. With that in mind, I offer the following suggested accompaniments to a steaming bowl of chili:

• Cooked brown or white rice

• Cooked quinoa

• Corn chips

• Lime wedges

• Chopped fresh cilantro

• Cubed avocados

• Chopped fresh or canned jalapeños

• Tomatillo salsa

• Guacamole

• Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt (for vegetarian chili)

• Grated Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese (for vegetarian chili)

• Warm flour or corn tortillas

• Corn bread

• Toasted pepitos (pumpkin seeds)
