Bean and Bulgur Chili is great if you are on a high fiber diet or a anti-inflammatory diet. For a long time I was on a high fiber diet and this recipe introduced me to Bulgur. It is a cereal grain made from cracked wheat.
This chili is wonderful and if you have not had bulgur before please try this recipe. I originally found it my Taste of Home Healthy Cooking 2014 Annual Recipes Cookbook.
