  1. Tailgate Chili

    Want to feed the crew while watching the big game this weekend? Try this classic chili recipe that’s good for your heart – it’s even from the American Heart Association. And it’s ready in just 30 minutes.


    • 1 lb. 95% lean ground beef (or ground white meat chicken or turkey for a healthier option)
    • 1 medium onion (chopped)
    • 1 medium green bell pepper (chopped)
    • 1 medium jalapeño (optional, only if you like spicy chili), chopped
    • 4 cloves minced, fresh garlic OR 2 tsp. jarred, minced garlic
    • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
    • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
    • ½ tsp. ground coriander
    • 15.5 oz. canned, no-salt-added or low-sodium pinto or kidney beans, rinsed, drained
    • 14.5 oz. canned, no-salt-added, or, low-sodium, diced tomatoes (undrained)
    • ¾ cup jarred salsa (lowest sodium available)


    1. Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray. Cook beef and onion over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring constantly to break up beef. Transfer to a colander and rinse with water to drain excess fat. Return beef to pan.
    2. Stir in bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, and cumin, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    3. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
    4. Optional – serve topped with low-fat grated cheese, a dollop of fat-free sour cream, sliced avocado, snipped cilantro or chopped green onions.

    Tip: If you want 5-alarm chili, add 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
