Chili Recipe- Quick and Easy

One of my favorite, easy “go-to” recipes is chili. It is simple, tasty and my 5 year old daughter loves it too. There are many options for different toppings. It is delicious with a Tbsp of sour cream (I use plain, non-fat greek yogurt as a lower calorie alternative), green onions, a little low-fat cheese or avocado. I have seen friends or family serve chili with beans, chips, pasta, rice or even potatoes. Whichever starch option you decide to go with, remember to keep the portions under control, as this will add to the calories listed below.  I often have a side salad or a side of veggies with chili to balance the meal. Enjoy!
