Chili Con Carne

Yum, chili!

It's actually pretty easy to make a chili that is healthy. You just make sure that you pick ground turnkey instead of red meat. So, I'm not sure I needed this recipe to make a healthy chili.

But, since I am working my way through this book, I did the recipe anyway. It was pretty good. Maybe not the best chili I've made, but good enough.

I couldn't find a can of 35 ounces of whole tomatoes, so I used one 28 ounce can plus one 14 ounce can. It made a lot of extra chili. I saved the rest in the freezer as leftover.

Normally, chili runs around 1000 calories a serving. This one comes in at 287 calories.

One last thing: you can see in the photo that I needed to spice things up a little bit. That's "Dave's Insanity Sauce" in the background. I put four drops in my serving and it gave it a nice kick.

Horray for Dave! You really go through that stuff, don't you?
