Made with Native Forest Organic Young Jackfruit and Edward & Sons Not-Beef Bouillon Cubes by @dedestable

This Vegan Three Bean Chili is hearty, cozy and packed with flavor!  The jackfruit adds a beautiful texture to the chili and soaks up all the spices, while the bouillon cubes add a depth of flavor! It’s seriously so yummy and easily made on the stove or in a slow cooker.

  • Cocoa powder may seem like an odd ingredient, but it actually adds a depth and acidity.
  • Make sure to add juice of beans (excluding pinto) to chili! It not only has nutritional value, but it adds flavor.
