Eggplant Chili

For this week's lunches, I made a pot of chili.

I have made chili a 1000 ways, like most people, but this is my all-time favorite.

I start out with a box of Shelby's chili mix. I'm not a fan of mixes but this is an exception. If I try to get the same flavor on my own, it falls short. They've got just the right seasoning mix for my taste buds.

Instead of the ground beef, I brown finely diced eggplant in peanut oil along with diced onions. When good and brown, I add the rest of the ingredients per the box instructions, plus black beans.

I eat it with a hunk of whole grain bread and some New York white cheddar cheese. Mmmm....can't wait for today's lunch!
