Better Homes and Gardens chili

(low fat)

12 ounces ground beef or turkey
1 cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped green sweet pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 14 ½ ounce can tomatoes
1 15-ounce can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
2 to 3 teaspoons chili powder
½ teaspoon dried basil
¼ teaspoon pepper
cayenne pepper to taste

  1. In a large saucepan cook ground meat, onion, sweet pepper and garlic till meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat. Stir in undreained tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce, chili powder, basil and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Makes about five cups (4 main-dish servings).

If you do as I do and use salt-free beans, tomatoes, and tomato sauce, the sodium count will be lower than what is shown.  Better Homes and Gardens cookbook rates this as "low-fat".    I always make a double batch and freeze some.  Chili freezes beautifully.
