Happy National Chili Day!!

In honor of National Chili Day, we're sharing our favorite recipe for a delicious and simple, 3 Bean Chili. This recipe yields many servings and can be frozen, which is perfect for nights when you're too busy to cook. And of course we think it tastes best when served with Roots & Branches crackers. :)
