Chili (with beans) is on Calorie Count's short list of foods that are high in fiber, iron, potassium, vitamin A, magnesium, selenium, and too many other nutrients to mention, while being low in saturated fat. Kids like it, it reheats well, and it tastes great on baked potatoes. Everyone should eat more chili.
