It’s getting chilly outside and that means it’s time to start craving our comfort foods. Does warm chili sound festive to you? This is one of my favorite comfort foods. I just needed to make a homemade chili that was lean and not full of fat and lower in carbs.

Servings: 5
Cook Time: 25 minutes

1 lb lean ground chicken
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can black beans
4 oz onion
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sea salt

In a sauce pan cook your lean ground chicken till fully cooked. Drain grease and set aside.

2. In a separate pan (or use the same pan from your chicken and clean it before using it) and cook your onions. You will not be sauteing them. The less fat in this dish the better. Cook onions till brown.

3. Once your onions are cooked, place chicken back into pan. Add your tomatoes, black beans (don’t drain them because the juice from the black beans will help thicken your chili), and spices. Stir until mixed. Place a lid over the top and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.

Tip: If you prefer your chili to not be spicy then don’t add the crushed red pepper flakes. If you enjoy really spicy then you’ll want to add another 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of the crushed red pepper flakes
