This chili recipe can be made with pre-cooked or canned ingredients, and it will still taste amazing, but for the absolute best flavor and nutrition, it’s always a good idea to start from scratch using only the most wholesome ingredients. That way, you know exactly what’s in it, and you don’t have to make up for oddly spiced concoctions that often come in cans.

If you do choose to use canned goods, then be sure to cut the called for salt into half. Otherwise, you might be disappointed with the results, as salt is used in the preparation of goods that are meant to last through long term storage. You can always add more later, but too much too soon can be a challenge, if not an impossible problem to solve.

This edible dish is infused with a low dose of cannabinoids that are spread across several servings, so you don’t have to worry about getting too stoned from a single bowl. Like with most cannabis goods, we highly recommend starting low and slowly working your way up to a double or triple dose, as that will give you a good amount of time to gauge the potential effects, but this one is relatively tame, so feel free to have a second bowl if you must. That is, as long as you have some kind of experience with edibles in the past.
