People love chili because it’s a simple one-pot meal that feeds a hungry crowd. Preparing with fatty ground beef and topping with cheese, sour cream, and corn chips can really bump up the fat and calories. This version cuts 70% of the calories, 70% of the total fat, and 83% of the unhealthy saturated fat from traditional chili recipes without eliminating any of your favorite flavors. With just a few simple substitutions, this chili will become a new crowd favorite.
Makeover Tip: Replace high-fat ground beef with lean ground turkey breast and lean ground sirloin to lower the saturated fat, and add extra flavor with bacon and beer (which has less sodium than canned broth). Top with reduced-fat cheese and you’re sure to score big nutrition points.
