All-American Beef ChiliA delicious fix-it-and-forget-it recipe, which I've made even easier by using canned beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and tomato juice. The chili is best made a day in advance to allow the flavors to meld. It can also be frozen in single serving portions for easy weeknight dinners. Serve over brown rice, quinoa, or your favorite grain. Possible garnishes include diced avocados, grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese, fat-free sour cream, diced ripe tomatoes, sliced scallions, and chopped cilantro. They are all listed in the Calorie Combos.
