We loved making this Cozy Kale Chili & delicious Festive Kale Salad! We thought both were delicious.

TIP #1: The trick is to start by making the chili, so while it is simmering you can then make the kale salad. Times out perfectly!

TIP #2: We wished we had made more chili though. It was really delicious so you may want to double it for larger portions!
