Ingredients

  • 2-3 diced Bell Pepper (diced) 2 or 3 peppers based on preference, diced to preferred size
  • 2 Onions (diced)
  • 1 lb 97% lean Ground Turkey Can use other meats but points might change
  • 2 cans Black Beans
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 4 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic Add more or less depending on preference

Instructions

  • 1. Dice peppers and onions to the desired size
    2. Brown meat in a pan. *Full disclosure: I use 97% lean ground turkey and drain the extra fat after it has been cooked and I call it a 0 Smart Point food. If you want to follow things specifically by the book on WW Freestyle either use 99% lean meat or recalculate the recipe using 97% lean. I did use the 97% to calculate Points Plus*
    3. Put everything in a slow cooker. Stir, and turn on high.
    4. Cook until veggies are cooked down and the chili's consistency is to your liking. I typically cook it on high for 3-4 hours, then turn it on low for another 2-3 hours.
    5. *OPTIONAL* If the chili needs thickening, corn starch is a great option. Mix a small amount of cornstartch (1 tbsp MAX) with enough water that it mixes well. Pour mixture into chili while stiring consistently, and continue to stir for a minute or two. Then let it sit and simmer for 10 minutes. This should thicken your chili.
    6. Serve as desired
