Easy Chili Recipe

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Here's my recipe for a quick and easy warm Chili dinner. It's hearty and low fat, and makes a tasty dinner. You can even make it ahead and freeze for a quick week night meal in a pinch.

1 lb lean ground turkey (or beef if you prefer)
1/2 small onion diced
3 tbsp chili powder
3 cans Bush's Chili beans (the red beans in chili sauce)
3 cans Del Monte diced tomatoes Zesty Chili Style
1 can sweet corn, drained
1/4 cup French's mustard
1/3 cup Sticky Fingers BBQ sauce (or your favorite)
(If you like it hot you can add some Texas Pete to your taste)


Spray skillet and add onion and garlic. Saute until onion becomes soft, 2-3 minutes. Add ground meat and chili powder and brown over medium heat until cooked through, 7-9 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large pot or slow cooker, add all canned ingredients and sauces. Drain meat and add to pot. Stir ingredients together, bring to a boil and reduce to simmer for at least 30 minutes. This is good eaten right away or can continue to simmer for a couple of hours. I like to serve it with shredded sharp cheddar, a dollop of sour cream and tortilla chips.

This freezes well. I often divide leftovers in to individual portions to freeze for lunches or a quick weeknight meal.

I've never added mustard to my chili but it sounds pretty good. I might try that next time. Thanks for the suggestion!

I have to say the same thing as Brandy, I've never put mustard in my homemade chili before. But I think I will have to give it a try. Thanks for posting :o)
