In the Kitchen with the... Hubbies: Josh's Kitchen Sink Chili

I like recipes. I like recipes because I am not very good at making up my own. I'm creative... but only once I have a good base recipe to follow. My husband however, is great at taking all of the leftover and on-the-verge-of-getting-thrown-away produce from the week and producing an amazing meal. I wasn't around to see the entire process but as you can see, the end result was colorful and delicious. So, without further ado, I give you Josh's Kitchen Sink Chili (which he made with Vegan Cornbread).
