It is officially fall here. Leaves are changing and leaves are falling. I have a love hate relationship with fall. Fall means chili and layering and pretty colors and perfect temperatures. But it also means winter is right around the corner. Sigh.

Speaking of Chili…Fit Foodie Finds’ Black Bean and Quinoa Chili was featured a couple times the past few days…

So, I’m back today with a recipe that is classic, simple, and delicious.

Not much work has to go into this recipe…or into prepping the ingredients. And I love how hearty it is. Plus, it’s gluten free and there’s quinoa in it. #winning

This recipe is one of those…that I thought of in the shower. I swear I think of the greatest ideas either in the shower or on a run. TMI?

Anyway, I bet you know what I had for lunch every single day last week :) + I threw some avocado on top, which I’d highly recommend.
