Gluten Free Chili (That even a baby will eat)

Mmm, chili.I tend to practice BLW (babyledweaning). My son loves to eat chickpeas and kidney beans. I love how easy chili is to make. There are endless variations and it so healthy for you. Here are three variations for chili.   It also freezes well . I am usually cooking to feeding a family of 7- so you may cook less or more.
