21 Day Fix Chili Kid & Husband Approved!

Around our house nothing is better on a cold February day than a bowl of warm, hearty chili. I don’t know if there is anything better on a zero-degree day when its snowing out… boy do I love chili!

I started 21-Day Fix on January 3rd and needed a lighter, fix-friendly recipe. My husband was skeptical of course (I’m not a gourmet chef). However, I was able to fix-up our chili, now it’s mom, husband AND kid approved!

Ingredients used: Crock-Pot, lean ground turkey, low sodium chicken broth, low sodium black beans, sea salt canned corn, no sugar/no salt added diced tomato, 1 large green pepper

21-Day Fix Crock-Pot Chili

1 can low-sodium black beans – drained and rinsed well

Salt (lightly), pepper, chili powder, paprika, and garlic powder (to taste)

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker

Makes 8 servings (green container size)

Container Count: 1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, (top with cheese – 1 blue)

Usually I have enough to feed all five of us for dinner, plus lunch for Trent and I the next day! I make homemade corn bread as a side for Trent and the kids. The corn bread isn’t fix-approved. 😦

Cover and heat on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 yours

There are a couple of things I love about this chili recipe…

  1. It’s pretty! The colors are gorgeous unlike standard chili, which is one color.
  2. It’s cheap! It only costs $7.50 for a clean, healthy, kid and husband approved dinner!
  3. It’s easy! I can dump the ingredients into the Crock-Pot in the morning before work, turn on low, and it’s ready for dinner.
