FEED YOUR FACE: A DIET CHILI

OK. So this is not tradtional Easter fare. But is good all the same. You need:


  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 2 cups sliced celery

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell peppers

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

  • 15 ounce can, undrained kidney beans

  • 1/2 or less teaspoon chili powder (or more to taste)

  • 2 - 16 ounce cans, undrained tomatos

  • 1 bay leaf
Cook up the ground beef and onion in a dutch oven or very large deep skillet.

Drain thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer, covered, for 1 to 2 hours. Remove bay leaf. Serve hot.


Makes about 8 servings. 1 cup is about 156 calories.

If you want to up it, add some cheese. And some sheep herders bread. But then it isn't as diet-y/

This makes a great meal, no matter how you do it up. And if there are any leftovers, they freeze up good.


So, make some up. Chow down this Easter, and have a great time with family and friends. And FEED YOUR FACE!
