Low Calorie Chili Recipe

Thanks to the hurricane, I am off today! This extra day is just what I needed to keep working on our wedding invitations! We are DIYing them and can't wait to finish!

So while I am home today, attempting to stay dry, I thought you'd enjoy a perfect rainy day recipe! I made it this weekend for the men (aka my fiance and his dad) during some of our house renovations, and it was a total hit!

 5 Step Low Calorie Chili 

- 1 lb ground turkey or beef 
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 1 can dark kidney beans (drained)
- 1 can light kidney beans (drained)
- 1 6oz/8oz can of tomato sauce
- 1/2 onion chopped
- salt/ pepper to taste 
- sour cream (optional)
- shredded sharp cheddar cheese (optional)
- red pepper flakes (optional)

How To:

1. Brown ground meat, onion and olive oil in large sauce pan. 
2. Once meat is brown, add tomato sauce and beans. 
3. Mix through. 
4. Let simmer for 20 minutes.
5. Add salt/pepper to taste.
I also add red pepper flakes for a little kick, but that is only optional. 

Optional: Top with sour cream & shredded cheese.  

Can be served over rice, with corn chips, or even over a small bed of chopped lettuce.
