Using a very lean ground turkey or chicken you can make chili very “clean eating’ friendly.   Here’s my favorite recipe.

clean eating chili

32 ounces ground turkey or chicken
1 large onion, diced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 16 ounce diced tomatoes
2 8 ounce tomato sauce
1 6 ounce tomato paste
1 can chili beans
4 tablespoon chili powder
3 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon beef bouillon powder
3 cups water or to desired thickness


In a large pot place 2 pounds of lean ground turkey (chicken or beef) and enough water to cover the meat. You are going to boil the meat, it gives it a better texture. After the meat is cooked add the onions and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and enough water to desired thickness. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for about 3 hours.

Yields: 8 Servings
