Ricardo (and Brigitte!) understands that life is turned upside down with a new baby—he’s been through it three times! So he’s made a habit of giving coolers filled with ready-to-serve meals to friends expecting little bundles of joy, often delivering them right after baby arrives (to weather the first twenty-four hours). It’s a gift that everyone can appreciate; from the brother-in-law who had a tough week at work, to the newly separated or a friend who’s going through chemotherapy. Really, the only thing you have to do with this chili is pop it into the oven. And since it’s bursting with vegetables, there’s no need to worry about a side dish.
