You can easily make this brothy beany soupy veggie stewy meal from fridge and pantry stuff, and it’s as healthy as it is yum. If you want it a bit thicker, try mashing up some of the beans, or adding either an extra tablespoon of cornstarch or a bit of extra sour cream. As is, this chili is light enough for lunch and borderline hearty enough for a filling dinner.
