I have really gotten serious about making healthy meals. The thing is, that I didn't tell my fiance that we were eating extra healthy meals. And he didn't notice the difference. And we have both lost a few pounds. Recently Charles requested that I make chili. I don't really have time to make traditional chili - too much chopping and too long of a cook time. So I fudged things a little and came up with a way to make a delicious chili in under an hour! Chili is such a healthy meal - it is packed with veggies, plus beans pack a lot of protein. Feel free to add in your favorite veggies!
You will need:
1 large carton of Chicken Broth
1 pound chicken
1 large jar of Salsa
1 can of Black Beans
1 can of Diced Tomatoes
1 can of Kidney Beans
1 can of Corn
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
Fat Free Sour Cream
Cook and shred the chicken. You can boil the chicken, which only takes about 8 minutes, or you can bake it.
Chop the pepper and then saute it in olive oil until soft. Then pour the tomatoes, beans, corn and chicken broth into a large pot. Heat over medium heat until boiling slowly. Then add in the salsa and the chicken. Let it cook for another 5 minutes.
I like to serve chili with brown rice on the bottom and cheese and sour cream on top. Some people think that serving chili over rice is weird - serve it however you want. You could even omit the broth to make a thick chili and then serve it over chips for nachos.
