Healthy Chili Makeover Recipe
A Recipe From DietWatch
In a large skillet, brown ground beef. Transfer cooked beef to a colander to drain and rinse with warm water to remove any excess oil. In another large skillet, carmelize onions (no oil or butter necessary). Add ground beef and tomato sauce. Add all other seasonings and beans. Simmer for about 15 minutes and serve hot.
This dish is great with a slice of part skim cheddar cheese melted on the top and served with baked pita chips (slice a piece of pita bread into triangles, rip apart and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Place in a 350-degree oven until crispy).
