Protein Packed Chili Recipe
When you talk about comfort foods, a mouthwatering, tangy bowl of chili has to be right up near the top of the list. And, if you look at the ingredients, there are some nice health benefits, too - it's low in saturated fat while it packs a ton of protein and iron. When you add beans, that adds a nice amount of dietary fiber and potassium. A big bowl of chili (2 cups) can have up to 32 grams of protein and 16.8 grams of fiber.
So, here's the recipe that I've been making for years that the family goes nuts over...
Ingredients: 2 lbs of grass-fed beef, 85-15 ratio • 2 tbls olive oil • 1 large diced onion • 4 minced garlic cloves • 2 cans of diced tomato 15 oz • 1 can of tomato sauce 15 oz • 2 tbls of chili powder • 2 tspns of cocoa powder • 2 cans of red kidney beans 15 oz
Instructions: You'll need a large pot and pan. Pour the olive oil in the pot over a low flame. Add in the minced garlic, and diced onion cooking it down for about 2 minutes. In your large frying pan, add your beef and cook until it's about 80% done. Drain the grease and add the meat into the pot. Then add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes stirring it all in. Next add chili and cocoa powder, stirring it again. Cook on low heat for 15 minutes and then stir in kidney beans. Put your flame on simmer for another hour and 15 minutes, leaving the lid on the pot about a quarter inch open. When you hear it bubble, give it a good stir.
Suggested toppings: Shredded cheddar or Monterrey Jack, sour cream, hot sauce, diced scallions, crispy fried canned onions, squeeze in fresh lime juice, and tortilla chips for dipping if you like! I'm ready to eat my computer screen, so, it's off to the kitchen I go for some amazing homemade chili!
