Buffalo Quinoa ChilibyStacy

WHO: Stacy is a writer and a slow food enthusiast from St. Louis. WHAT: A 30-minute chili with a serious kick. (Can we capitalize both serious and kick?) HOW: This will be one of the simplest soups you'll ever make. Just simmer, people. WHY WE LOVE IT: Sometimes we just want a lot of heat, and for those times, this is the dish we want to make. As a handy bonus, you can whip this up in about the time it takes to crack a beer.

Quick game: can you spot the wildcard ingredient? (You got us -- it's those white beans. But they're pretty, right?)

The start of all good soups: sweat the aromatics.

And then the broth. Now crank the heat!

If you have a working stove, this is what should happen. Turn it back to a simmer, and let everything mingle for 15 minutes.

Then: add the rest of the things.

Stir them in -- see how easy this is? -- and simmer for 15 minutes more.

And lastly, you cannot forget the cheese. Dig in!
