My Gluten Free Chili Recipe
(Re-post from my previous blog 2013)
I know if you are a single or on the run constantly, it is a little difficult to cook healthy.
It is much easier to grab fast food. When you are gluten free such as me, you have to put more effort into than that and dependent upon your budget and taste buds, gluten free can be expensive and unhealthy based on the sugar content.
I can fix a crock-pot of chili and it will last me for at least 3 to 4 days.
The 1st day – eat as normal
The 2nd day – add cheese to your serving
The 3rd day – eat with tortilla chips (corn of course)
The 4th day – finish it off with cheese and tortilla chips (corn of course), sour cream, other toppings gluten free you choose.
- 1 white onion
- 1 bell pepper
- 1 jalapeno
- 1 – 8 oz. can of dark red kidney beans (protein)
- 1 – 8 oz. can of light red kidney beans
- 1 – 8 oz. can of chili beans
- 1 – 16 oz. can of stewed tomatoes
- 1 pound of ground hamburger meat (91% or 93% fat free) or ground turkey
- 4 tablespoons of garlic powder
- 6 tablespoons of chili seasoning
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of pepper
Shall we begin?
- Cut onion and green pepper into small pieces.
- Cook ground beef/ turkey in a frying pan, add onions and green peppers, once browned place into crock-pot.
- Add the drained cans of kidney beans and chili beans, then add the stewed tomatoes not drained, add in all seasonings and stir
- Once completely stirred, cut up the jalapeno pepper and make sure you remove the veins and those seeds
- Scatter the jalapeno peppers on top and place the lid on the crock-pot
- Cook on high temperature for 2 to 4 hours or low temperature for 6 to 8 hours, stir occasionally
- Once done taste and if you need to add more chili powder to your liking you can do so.
There you have it… gluten free chili
You have your protein and your vegetables and a healthy fulfilling meal for the next 3 to 4 days!
Oh by the way McCormicks also has a Gluten Free Chili mix available now if you do not want to measure out your own seasonings
