We live on chili in the winter! I cook up a huge pot over the weekend – it only gets better after a few days in the fridge. After our busy days with sports and after-school activities, I can have dinner on the table in about 5 minutes – thank you microwave! And this is seriously healthy – there isn’t a bad thing in it. If you are doing Adkins or South Beach, just skip the corn.

1 Head of Celery, chopped
2 Green Peppers, chopped
2 Red Peppers, chopped
1 Sweet Onion, chopped
1 bunch of Cilantro or Parsley, chopped
1-2 Jalepenos, chopped (optional)

1 large can of Black Beans
1 large can of Red Kidney Beans
1 can of Pinto Beans
1 can of Dark Red Kidney Beans

Chili Powder to taste (around 4 or so tablespoons)
Red Pepper Flakes to taste (optional, if not using fresh jalepenos)
1-2 pounds of Ground Beef or Turkey

or White Rice underneath for an especially hearty meal
Using your largest stockpot, cut up celery, peppers, onion, cilantro or parsley, jalepenos and place in pot over medium heat. Add cans of tomatoes, beans, and corn. Add chili powder and Red Pepper Flakes. Add meat last after you have adjusted seasonings. Cook on medium to low heat until all meat is thoroughly cooked. Serve topped with cheese and crushed tortilla chips. The Running Man loves his served over white rice.
