Healthy and Hearty Super bowl Chili

Super bowl XLIX is rapidly approaching and with unhealthy snack and dinner options quickly arising. I’ve decided to share a chili recipe I found and tweaked on Pinterest for this Sunday’s upcoming game.

For this chili recipe you’re going to need:

Ground turkey
Kidney beans – 2 cups
Black beans – 2 cups
Mixed vegetables – 2 cups, chopped
Onion – ½ onion
Salsa – ½ cup
Water – 15 ounces
Chicken broth – 1 can (optional) 
Brown sugar – 1 tablespoon
Garlic powder – 3 teaspoons
Onion powder – 3 teaspoons
Chili powder – 2 ½ tablespoons
Basil – 2 teaspoons 
Oregano – 2 teaspoons 
Salt – ½ teaspoon
Pepper – ½ teaspoon

What you’re going to do first is cook the ground turkey and combine all the seasonings together, when the turkey is almost cooked add the chopped vegetables and cook those with the turkey.

Add the water, onion and beans to the pot and let the flavors marinate together for a couple of hours. Afterwards I removed the onion and added the chicken broth as I saw the liquid started to cook off and left it on for another hour.

One of the reasons why I let the chili for so long is because I cook both the kidney and black beans in the pot, beans in general take awhile to cook and I like my beans a tad over cooked, it makes them easier to bite into.

And that’s it! Pair them off with some pita chips, triscuts or whatever you want honestly, the star is the chili and with it having so many attributes such as the vegetables and beans, you’ll be able to feel like you’re indulging without over indulging.

Let me know if you have a super bowl recipe I need to try, I’m currently looking for other things to pair with my chili.
