Black Bean-Salsa Chili
This top-rated reader recipe swaps lean turkey for beef and adds pureed beans to help thicken the chili and boost the fiber. Your chili's spiciness depends on the salsa—use medium or hot salsa if you want to turn up the heat. Use mild if you're serving sensitive palates or are unsure of your guests' heat preferences. (You can always offer a bottle of hot sauce for those who prefer chili with a kick.)
RyannUden rated this recipe 5 stars: "This chili had a wonderful depth of flavor while keeping just enough heat without overpowering our taste buds. The recipe itself was quick and fairly easy."
