I love chili...thick, meaty chili. No one makes it better than my mom! There is nothing like mama's cookin'!
I have made my own chili, but now that I am trying really hard to lose weight, I am trying to stay away from high-calorie, meaty meals.
I have made this chili several times and LOVE IT! It calls for ground turkey, but I leave it out and it tastes just as good! Why spend the money on ground turkey if it doesnt really add anything to the recipe?
BlackBean Chili (Vegetarian)
3 cans black beans (undrained)
1 can crushed tomatoes (from Aldi's with the chile's in it to add spice!)
1 diced onion
2 cloves of garlic (I used minced)
1 1/2 Tbsp chili
1 Tbsp Oregano
1 Tbsp Basil
I throw this into a crockpot on low before work (takes less than 5 minutes) and then by the time I get home, it is ready to serve. Yum!
If you plan on making it on the stovetop, it should simmer on low for at least an hour.
