One of my Mom's gym friends recently recommended this outstanding chili recipe...it sounded a little bizarre at first, but it is by far the best chili I've ever eaten. And yes, it has cabbage in it.
I know there are lots of healthy-ish chili recipes out there, but you should give this one a try. Here is the recipe, which serves 8.
1 chopped onion
1.25 lbs of extra lean ground turkey breast
2 cans of Rotel tomatoes
2 16 oz. cans of diced tomatoes (I use the one that comes with garlic and olive oil)
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 can of white beans
1 can of black beans
1 can of kidney or pinto beans
1 16 ounce bag of shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix
1 tbsp. of garlic powder
1 tbsp. of oregano
2 tbsp. of cumin
1/2 tbsp. cayenne pepper (or paprika, if you prefer a milder flavor)
In a large pot, brown the ground turkey with the chopped onion. Add all other ingredients, then bring to a boil and simmer for a few hours. Alternatively, you can make this in your slow cooker or Crock-Pot: after browning the ground turkey with the onion, put all ingredients in the Crock-Pot and cook on high for 4 hours. My Crock-Pot automatically switches to "warm" when the time runs out, so I put this together before I leave for work in the morning, and it's ready to serve as soon as I get home.
As I mentioned, the recipe serves 8, which can mean lots of leftovers. I always put the leftovers in small containers in the freezer. This gives me several days' worth of lunches to take to work.
*I've had a couple requests to start including fiber content with my nutritional info...great suggestion! I plan to start doing that right away, but I'm at work right now and don't have access to the nutritional info for all the ingredients in this recipe. I promise to post that as soon as I can, and will start including fiber content for all future recipes.
