Healthy Beef Chili

 

Healthy Beef Chili. The perfect balance between comfort and healthy food. Use the crockpot to help you save time during the busy holidays!P I N_______I M A G E

Hi all! How was your weekend my friends? Are you ready for the holidays? I still have some shopping to do but at least I managed to put a Christmas tree up last weekend. We debated whether to put one up this year (after having a very hectic year) and settled on doing a small (real) one (4 ft tall).  I have fallen in love with it! I may continue getting a small real tree each year from now on. But who knows, I seem to change my mind all the time so don’t take my word for it 😉

What I’m sure of is that I got the bug to bake, bake & bake! So you may see a few dessert posts coming up pretty soon (this makes Mr. Delish very happy by the way:))

Don’t you love it when a comfort food dish is also healthy? Chili is one of those dishes that is packed with protein, fiber, minerals, antioxidants and more. I like to use 96% ground beef but I heard other people like to make theirs with ground turkey. I’m not in to ground turkey but if you are, you should give it a try! The other thing that makes this recipe fantastic is that you can cook it in the crock-pot without being glued to the stove having to stir it every 15 minutes. Who has time for that?

I found this recipe on Facebook attached to a generic photo. I don’t even know the exact source to credit accordingly. It’s supposed to mirror Wendy’s Chili but I made a few adjustments that made it better (IMO 😉 )
