Vegetarian? Pass on the meat and add extra veggies or soy chorizo. Watching your girlish figure? Use ground turkey and turkey sausage instead. Want a chunkier hardier chili? Add less tomato juice. Not a big fan of spicy foods? Don’t add the cayenne. It’s really that simple.
Below is a list of ingredients I put in my chili. Like I said before, add what you like, pass on what you don’t, and put in as much or as little of each ingredient.
Hot Italian sausage
Canned stewed tomatoes Mexican style
Canned chili beans
Frozen fire roasted corn
Frozen fire roasted bell peppers
Crushed red chili peppers
In a pot saute onions in EVOO with salt and pepper.
Add meat and cook completely.
Add canned tomatoes, frozen veggies, beans (with juice) and tomato juice.
Season with spices to your taste.
Let simmer for 20 minutes to let all the flavors combine.
Serve topped with sour cream (or non fat plain Greek yogurt if your watching calories), green onions and shredded cheddar cheese.
Corn bread is also a must!
Kisses and warm wishes,
