Chili Con Carne

Chili is traditionally a dish that’s focused on meat and the seasonings that give it flavor. While many versions include beans, to the nutritional benefit of the dish, it’s entirely possible to make a meat-forward version packed with nutrition. We recommend pairing your portion with a whole grain and plenty of your favorite vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. 96% lean ground beef
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • ½ cup diced carrot
  • 2 (28 oz.) cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley
  • 4 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • ¼ tsp. oregano
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt

Directions

  1. Preheat a large, heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Cook beef until brown, breaking up with a spatula (5-6 minutes).
  2. Stir in bell pepper, onion, and carrot. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften (5-6 minutes).
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, until chili reaches desired texture and flavor (15-30 minutes).
