Hearty Chili Recipe

I’ve been trying to eat healthier, in general, but especially so running isn’t so torturous. What I eat does impact how I feel and perform, do you ever feel that way?

Even though we’re getting a bit of a heatwave right now in Virginia….in the smack dead of winter (it’s supposed to be in the 50s most of this week), I still think Chili is a good idea, especially when you stock it full of yummy veggies:

Hearty Chili Recipe:

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 diced medium onion
1 diced green bell pepper
1 can of kidney beans, undrained
1 can of black beans, undrained
1 can of cannellini beans, undrained
2 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup frozen corn
2 tablespoons of taco seasoning
1 lb of lean, organic ground beef or turkey

Heat olive oil in skillet, sauté onion, pepper and corn until golden brown. Remove from pan and into a separate bowl. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Drain.

Add all ingredients to a large pot. Cook on medium heat until comes to a boil, reduce to medium-low heat. Cook for 45 minutes to one hour.

I highly recommend cooking this a day ahead and refrigerating over night before enjoying. The flavors really come out the next day.

I always cook my chili with taco seasoning, may sound weird, but don’t knock it til you try it! Any other seasoning you wanna try, go for it.

Make yoself some chili!
