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!
21-Day Fix Crock-Pot Chili
1lb. ground turkey
1 large can of diced tomato (no sugar or salt added)
4 oz. low-sodium chicken broth
1 large green pepper – diced
½ can corn (sea salt and no sugar added) – drained
1 can low-sodium black beans – drained and rinsed well
Salt (lightly), pepper, chili powder, paprika, and garlic powder (to taste)
Brown and crumble the turkey in a skillet, drain
Combine all ingredients in Crock-Pot
Stir to combine and mix in seasoning
Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 4-6 hours
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. 😦
There are a couple of things I love about this chili recipe…
- It’s pretty! The colors are gorgeous unlike standard chili, which is one color.
- It’s cheap! It only costs $7.50 for a clean, healthy, kid and husband approved dinner!
- 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.
