Chili is usually reserved for my husband to make. It’s his specialty, but usually we do that on Super Bowl, or on Halloween. I never really thought about making it during the week. I was looking through a huge binder of recipes I’ve clipped out over the years and saw a recipe for Turkey and White bean chili from Good Housekeeping. I used that as I guide, but used what I had in my house!
1 pound ground sirloin, (I used 15% fat kind)
1 medium onion
1 yellow pepper
1 orange pepper
3 cloves garlic
2 cans (15 oz.) diced tomatoes (I used 1 can Rotel with green chiles and one regular)
1 can (15 oz.) black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
First, get your blender out. I do NOT like chunks of veggies, so I always puree them!
First I put in the peppers and garlic
Add the cans of tomatoes and onion
When its all done, it should look like this:
In a large pot, add the beef and cook until its no longer pink. Drain any fat. Add the veggies from the blender and the black beans and the spices and cook on low for about 20 minutes.
I measured out the pot. It made 8 cups of chili.
Calorie Count gave it an A! It also has 103% of your Vitamin C for the day!
I am planning on having this for my lunches this week. Maybe bring a small baked potato and have an awesome chili/cheese/baked potato!
*FYI, you could also dump all this in your crock pot and cook it on low all day too!
