I just made some delicious chili – and it’s less than 1 WW/Blue point per serving. The recipe is at the end of this post.
Once you have your ingredients assembled, this chili takes about 10 minutes to put together, and then you’re free to do something else while it simmers on the stove. Although it is less than 1 point per servings, I log it as 1 point to make sure I cover all my bases. I’ve used ground turkey to make 0 point chili, and that’s good. However, the beef gives it a little more flavor and more traditional chili taste. I’m willing to use a point for that!
Quick & Easy Chili
- 1 lb. Lean Ground Beef (96% Lean)
- 1 qt. beef broth
- 3 cans diced tomatoes
- 4 cans beans (I use the Tri-Blend that Kroger sells – but most any bean will do – black beans, pinto, kidney, navy, great Northern, etc.)
- Dried diced onions, bell peppers, celery, garlic (to taste) I get these at an Amish store near us. I keep plenty in my pantry because they make meal prep so much easier. However, you can also substitute fresh veggies instead.
- Seasonings: salt, pepper, chili powder (to taste)
Brown the ground beef in a large pot. No oil or cooking spray is needed. Then dump everything else in. The amounts for the vegetables and seasonings depend on your taste. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, and it is ready to go.
