Tips

  • I do recommend using the leanest ground beef you can find otherwise you will find a little grease from the fat floating around. You can always skim it off if needed but leaner ground beef is best.

If you don’t care about it being a weight watchers recipe and just looking for a good chili recipe, you can substitute the ground beef for some ground turkey.
