Clean Eats: Easy Homestyle Chili Recipe

There is NOTHING better a hearty, healthy home cooked chili, on a crisp fall or winter day.  Agree?

This recipe has been in my family for years and has yet to be messed with, other than swapping out the meat between ground beef or ground turkey.  Too each their own, but regardless, so simple to make and is even better on Day 2.

Get a big ol’ pot out and get ready for some salvating glands as you cook it:

Serves roughly 6-8 people or 4 with LOTS of leftovers (again, DELICIOUS on day 2 and cold).

2 packages of lean (grass fed) ground beef or turkey 

1 medium onion

1 1/2 package of mushrooms

2-3 cloves of garlic

2 150z cans of kidney beans (low sodium)

1 large can of stewed tomatoes

1 Family Size of Tomato Soup (not the pre-made kind)

1 tbsp of chili powder

1 tbsp of crushed red pepper (or more if you like it spicy)

Salt and pepper to taste

Brown the meat, onions and garlic in a large sauce pan, over medium heat.  Add mushrooms once meat starts to brown.  Add one can of kidney beans with juice and one can of drained kidney beans.  Stir well.  Add can of tomatoes, tomato soup and stir well. Finally, add chili powder, crushed red pepper and salt/pepper.  Stir ocassionally and let simmer for approximatey 45 minutes to an hour to allow all flavors to marinade.

Serve with sour cream (or greek yogurt), fresh chopped green onions and shredded cheese.
