This Vegan Smoked Paprika and Black Bean Chili, which is part of the "5 Affordable Weeknight Dinners from Whole Foods Market" theme, is a perfect meal to serve for dinner on those chilly nights or when you need dinner ready in less than 30 minutes!
I have another good chili recipe on my website, Chipotle Black Bean, Sweet Potato and Quinoa Chili and another really good one called "Spicy Habanero Chili" which can be found in my Clean Eating Cookbook.
But this one is a little different from both of those.
The star of this recipe is the smoked paprika, which gives it a deep, smoky flavor that pairs really well with the black beans.
You only need one pot to make this recipe, the ingredient list is pretty simple and you probably have all the ingredients on hand.
Make it even more nutritious by topping it with diced avocados for some healthy fat or even spice it up with sliced fresh jalapenos.
This is a healthy meal made with whole food ingredients and it's organic, vegan and gluten-free.

Tip #2: I used "smoked" paprika in this recipe instead of regular paprika, but if you don't have "smoked", you can still use regular. It just won't have the distinct smoky flavor from the "smoked" variety.
