This Chili is so good, you won’t even notice that it is low in fat! I served this recently when friends came over for a bible study … they had no clue I substituted ground turkey for traditional Italian Sausage! When they found out it was low in fat, they had a second helping to make up for the calories (haha!)
|Extra Lean Ground Beef, Lean Turkey Italian Sausage|
|Slice the casting on the Turkey Sausage|
|Simply remove the ground Italian Turkey from the casting|
|Cook ground beef and turkey Italian Sausage in a large skillet- when cooked through, drain in strainer and set aside.|
|In the same skillet add chopped onion, celery, green and red peppers|
|1 can each: Kidney Beans, Great Northern Beans, Black Beans, 2 cans crushed tomatoes, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 packet of chili seasoning.|
|Place all beans in a strainer, drain and rinse well.|
|Place all of these ingredients in a large pot on the stove (medium heat)|
|Season with cinnamon, sugar, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper|
|If you like more “heat” add a dash of Tobasco|
|Let simmer on stove for 2 hours (you may also place in the crock pot for 6 hours)|
|Serve with green onions, a tablespoon of low-fat sour cream and a sprinkle of finely shredded cheddar cheese. Mmmmm….|
