Beans are a great way to stretch your food $$$, they are inexpensive and are so versatile. The have an amazing ability to take on flavors, and are rich in fiber so they fill you up!
***TIP OF THE DAY *** Next time you do a recipe that calls for hamburger, substitute half of the meat for a can of beans. My personal favorite is black beans, my boys call them "Batman beans" (cause their black). If my kids are fighting me to try a new food, I just name it a superhero that matches the color and it usually works! Try it!!
½-1 lb Ground Meat (ground turkey preferred)
1 can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can Kidney Beans (drain and rinsed)
1 can Corn ( or 1 ½ cup frozen corn)
1 can Tomato Paste
3 Cups water (more if desiring a soupier texture)
1-2 TBL Brown Sugar
3 tsp Chili Powder
3 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Begin by browning meat, drain any excess fat. Next drain and rinse beans, add all ingredients into a large pot. Mix until combined. Bring to boil, boil for 10-15 min. Lower the heat to medium, let simmer 15-20 min. Top with sour cream and shredded cheese.
(I usually serve corn bread with this chili recipe, but soda crackers are also a family favorite!!)
Give this recipe a try on the next rainy cold day. You will love it!!!
