It’s Get Naked Friday! My favorite day of the week because, let’s face it, self-confidence is what it’s all about.
I don’t know about you, but this time of year I am in need of low-calorie comfort food that soothes the soul.
When I am feeling the need to curl up under a warm blanket and listen to the rain outside, there is nothing I would rather to have in my hands than a bowl of chili. And not just any chili, this chili!
Chili can be very good for you. It is packed with fiber, protein, healthy carbs and can fill you up with only a small portion.
Today I wanted to share with you my very favorite chili recipe.
I discovered the original recipe a few years ago on AllRecipes.com, submitted by Laura.
What I love about this recipe is that it is easy, only needs a handful of ingredients, the crock pot does all the work for you and it makes the house smell amazing.
Granted, canned ingredients are not always the best option due to their high sodium content, so be aware of that. Don’t add additional salt, and look for the cans that are low sodium.
If you can’t live without cheese on your chili, make it just a very small sprinkle. Once you start adding toppings, your chili can quickly become a dish high in fat and calories. You definitely want to avoid that. Simple is always best.
Hope you like it!
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 2 10.5 oz can of tomato soup
- 1 can of kidney beans
- 2 cans of black beans
- 2 TBSP Chili Powder
- 1/2 TBSP Garlic Powder
- 1/2 TBSP Cumin
- Dash of allspice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cook ground turkey in skillet until browned.
- Coat the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray, and mix in turkey, tomato soup, kidney beans, and black beans. Add chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, black pepper, allspice and salt.
- Cover, and cook 8 hours on Low or 4 hours on High.
This chili has become a staple in the dinner rotation at my house. It is also great if you need to serve a crowd. I have doubled or tripled the recipe and used it to make chili dogs for Superbowl Sunday or served with tortilla chips and nacho toppings for birthday parties.
You can’t go wrong.
This is a recipe that everyone will love. Even the picky ones 🙂
Have a great weekend!
