Spicy Red Wine Red Chard with Chickpeas and Feta

This is a spicy red chard dish with the flavors of red wine and garlic.  It is quite red!  It has
Red Wine, Red Chard and Crushed Red Pepper.

 It makes a great quick and healthy lunch or a side dish for dinner.  Red Chard takes little time to cook, so this can be ready in a jiffy.  Talk about fast food!  You might have to wait longer in the line at the fast food restaurant!
