Chili Sin Carne with Brown Rice

This Chili Sin Carne is a super easy and quick recipe. As easy as grabbing a couple of cans of beans and corn, onion, carrot, garlic, and a minimal amount of spices.

As a result, we get a protein-rich, high in iron and fiber content meal, that is so filling and satisfying with the depth of flavors. A portion of this chili is also high in such micronutrients, like Vitamin A, E, B1, and folate. Whereas, a portion of brown rice is high in vitamin B3 and manganese.  Why is it worth mentioning? These vitamins and minerals, among other benefits, are useful for the body to regulate blood pressure, keep bones healthy, help fight inflammation (manganese), support health of the nervous system (vitamin B group), and care for vision and eye health (vitamin A). And just like that, we are creating a well-balanced dish that’s not only delicious but will also fulfill your body’s nutrition needs.
