  • Summary

    We enjoyed this super fast and easy chili, however I made this on a day when I just wanted to use what I had in the house, so made some changes to the recipe. For example, the original recipe called for 1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans - as I didn't have any I used some frozen corn in its place and for the 1 can of black beans I used 1 can of scarlet runner beans which looked more like black kidney beans. Very good chili which although different with my changes was enjoyed by all. This is a very mild chili--but the chili powder can be increased substancialy for a bit more heat. If following the WW flex plan this is 5 points/serving (1 cup with 2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream)! Recipe source: WW magazine

    Ingredients

    • 1 teaspoon olive oil (I think this can probably be skipped and lower the points of this dish)
    • 3/4 lb lean ground beef
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 bell pepper, chopped (I used a red bell pepper because that is what I had on hand, the original recipe specifies a yellow )
    • 1 tablespoon chili powder (you may need more chili powder for chili with more heat, see note in description)
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes, diced
    • 1 (15 ounce) red kidney beans, rinsed and drained (or use the corn as I did, see note in description)
    • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained (see note in description)
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
    • 2 scallions, sliced (optional)
