This mild bean and potato chili comes together in minutes, so save it for nights when you’re worn out but still want to feed the family something delicious, healthy, and homemade. Poblano peppers can vary in heat, so make sure you taste the dish as you’re cooking to adjust the seasoning to your liking. The process of lightly mashing the chili in the pot thickens the broth so the final results are stewy instead of soupy. A radish and cilantro topping adds a pop of color and nice fresh crunch. Complete the meal with tortilla chips or big hunks of toasted buttered cornbread.
