{Clean Eating Crock Pot Chili}

Growing up...as soon as the weather got colder....chili was a staple in our house. My Mom makes THA best chili! We always loved it! This is my Mom's recipe....with a few additions to make it my own! I hope you love it as much as we do! It is simple, cheap and healthy! Perfect this time of year!


Clean Eating Crock Pot Chili
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 2 small green peppers (or 1 medium) chopped
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • salt and pepper 
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans organic pinto beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can organic black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste (I like to freeze the leftover paste in a ziplock freezer bag and just grab a chunk when needed)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. chili powder

Add chopped onions and green peppers to medium sized pan, sprayed with olive oil spray, and cook until onions are translucent and peppers are soft. Add ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and saute until beef is thoroughly cooked and no longer pink.

Add beef mixture to crock pot. Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. 

Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. 

Before serving....taste and add more salt if needed.

**Optional toppings: plain Greek yogurt, organic shredded cheese, organic tortilla chips, diced green onions. 

ENJOY!!

    1. No, I don't count calories but I would think it would be pretty low as long as you use extra lean meat. Hope you love it! :)

  4. Just put everything in the pot and it looks watery. Will it thicken up?

  6. Curious if it is too spicy for children? If I should cut back the spice about a tsp?

    1. It's not too spicy. My kids love the it but you could always back off a little if your kids aren't big fans!
