Cheap Chili! THM E

I love chili on a cold winter day. I have a small family. So I make this to serve 4-6. You can double for your larger families if needed! I love this recipe for all “Drive Thru Sues” a nickname coined by Trim Healthy Mama authors for those of us who love the quick and easy meals! It’s a crock pot meal, so I make it in the morning and it’s perfect for dinner. And I LOVE it as leftovers!

Recipe- All cans are 15 oz

1 can black beans

1 can kidney beans

1 can tomato sauce

3 Tbsp live. love. sisters taco seasoning Make Your Own Taco Seasoning! THM-FP

2 tsp chili powder

1 chopped onion

1 pound lean ground turkey, browned

4-6 cups water

Salt to taste

Dump this all in your crock pot on low, and come back to dinner 6-8 hours later! If you haven’t tried our recipe for taco seasoning, you can use whatever you use for taco seasoning. Even a packet of chili seasoning from the grocery store works too!

THM E friendly toppings –

Non fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream

Garnish amounts of cheddar cheese

Chopped onions

THM friendly salsa


*You could use beef if you are in the mood! That modification would make this recipe XO*

*if you like chunky tomatoes you can use an 6-8oz can of tomato sauce AND a full 15 oz can of chunky tomatoes with their juices. You can also use a can of rotel in place of the chunky tomatoes for extra ZIP!*

*You can make this on the stove top if you forgot to get it ready in the morning. Brown and drain the meat in a large stock pot, sauté the onions in the same pan- then dump the meat and everything into the same pot! Cook 30 minutes or so until fully heated.*
