This is a quick on the go low calorie low fat chili that can be made with meat or without. It is so easy to make, but its really delicious and satisfying!
This makes 4 generous servings and freezes well. This recipe can also be doubled. I usually make this once a month and double it and portion it out into individual servings for my freezer. That way, I always have a meal ready for me. This is made without any added fat.
1 pound of cooked ground meat, cubed chicken or beef stew cut into small pieces (I like this with beef stew)
2 cup of cooked black beans (or whatever beans you prefer)
2 cups of cooked brown rice: http://www.healthycrock.com/2012/01/how-to-make-brown-rice-in-your-crock.html
4 cups of your favorite salsa (I LOVE the salsa from Costco)
4 cups of strained or crushed tomatoes (I prefer the Pomi brand in the red box)
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of chili powder
2 teaspoons of cumin
2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper (optional)
Brown your meat and then combine all of the additional ingredients on your stove top and heat through until just warm.
Tip: You can save money by cooking bags of dry beans ahead of time and freezing them in 1 cup servings for recipes.
