Roasted Poblano Pepper and White Bean Chili

This is a simple and healthy plant based chili recipe. It is dairy free and nut free yet packed with flavor. I've used mashed white beans to give this chili a creamy texture, upping the protein and reducing the fat. Make this on a Sunday and have it for lunch all week.
This recipe is simple, no fancy ingredients, and I get right to the point. No ads or boring stories to read, forcing you to scroll scroll scroll to finally get to where you want to be. And on that note...Enjoy!
