Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers with Arugula Lime Sauce

I love a traditional beef burger as much as the next person, but sometimes I want something a little different, a little lighter, and a bit more healthy.  These Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burgers with Arugula-Lime Sauce are so tasty that you won’t even miss the meat!  They are loaded with spices and are low in the fat department.  If you omit the feta cheese, it would not only be vegetarian, but vegan.  You can simply replace the feta with crumbled tofu or just omit all together and they would still be fantastic.

Turkey, Sausage & Black Bean Chili

Who doesn’t love a good ‘ol pot of Turkey, Sausage & Black Bean Chili? It’s absolutely perfect on its own, but can totally make other things even better.  Take fries, for instance…throw some chill on fries with cheese and – BOOM! – chili cheese fries!  You know what else works?  Leftover chili in the morning with a fried egg on top.  Yeap! Breakfast.  Counting the garnishes and side of cornbread, it’s basically all four food groups in one meal and who’s going to complain about that?  Yummy & practical? Love it :)!

Chili is definitely something I make regularly.  I can vary the meat or veg slightly (depending what I have on hand), but it is guaranteed to always be delicious. Just this past weekend I was doing some work outside, it was cold out and to come in to this warm bowl of goodness was awesome.  I made some corn bread to go along with…actually Cheesy Skillet Cornbread, cause how can you have chili without cornbread?  Well, you can, but it is some much better when you got some bread to dunk into.  And, whoever said no to some carbs on the side?  Ummmm….not me :)!  The recipe for the cornbread can be found here and once you’ve made this recipe there’s no going back!
