Chili

  • 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 small can tomato paste* (See Edit)
  • Chili seasoning (Can use packaged kind or, I make mine from chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, garlic powder, and minced onion, all to taste)
  • 1 can navy beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • Water (to desired thickness)
  1. Brown beef in a skillet, drain.*
  2. Add all ingredients to a crockpot and heat on low for as long as needed. Add water as necessary to reach desired consistency.
  3. OR combine all ingredients in a stovetop pan and heat through. (Adding water as needed)
You can add the beef to the crockpot raw, but it does change the texture a bit. Also makes a good Frito pie or chili dog.

*Edit: If you use 1 can of tomato SAUCE (instead of paste), you don't have to add water, and it brings the total calories to only 235. :) I liked it better.
