Three-Bean Chili - Delicious Decisions

As more and more canned foods without added salt become available, such as the red kidney beans, pinto beans, and chickpeas (garbanzo beans) used here, it is getting easy to put healthy chili on the table in very little time, with very little effort, and with almost no cleanup involved.
