Ballast Point Indra Kunindra Stout Chili Recipe

One of Ballast Point’s brewers, Cody Rice, shared his Vegan Stout Chili Recipe with us and it was out of this world! The best part about the recipe is if you are meat eaters (like ourselves) you can easily substitute ground turkey or any other meat! When we cooked up this dish we served it over some bowtie pasta and added some Fritos to the top for a nice crunch! This dish is extremely easy to make and perfect for those cold nights! Thank you Cody for sharing this recipe with us!
