This is a beautiful take on a classic chili and the addition of kale makes it hearty and nutritious. The black eyed peas provide a sturdy foundation for the plethora of spices, garlic, and onion that go into creating the flavor of this chili and the kale adds a nice bit of texture to make this recipe a 'bowl' in one.
