LSLCLR Ground Chicken Chili

*sorry for the lack of a picture, wasn’t feelin’ the photo shoot tonight

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 2 pork sausages, casing removed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 4-6 oz mushrooms, coarsely chopped *I had these in the fridge so I thew ‘em in the mix
  • 2 cans dark red kidney beans, drained (all they had at the store was reduced sodium, so that’s what I used)
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (I used Hunts fire roasted)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, diced
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce, any flavor
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp oregano
  • about 1/2 tsp salt (more if you like things salty)

Directions

  1. Cook ground chicken and pork sausage in a large pan until almost done; drain and return to stovetop. Add in garlic, onion, red pepper, and mushrooms. Sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add kidney beans, diced tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and spices to a slow cooker set on high. Mix in beef and veggies after they are done cooking.
  3. Cook on high for 2.5 hours or low 5 hours, or until done. Serve with something delicious like sour cream, cheddar cheese, or cornbread if you aren’t eating low carb (and of course a side salad)!
