Many people don’t realize that quinoa is actually a seed and not a grain! Red quinoa in this chili adds a unique twist to the classic dish many of us love (plus the red matches it nicely). Feel free to swap in any color of quinoa — they’re all a complete protein.
Spicy, smoky and sweet work to complement each other in a surprising way. The ground chipotle chili, fresh jalapeño, paprika, and onion add a nice kick of spice, while the honey adds a complex flavor to this vegetarian chili. If you would rather have your chili unsweetened, you can leave the honey out.
