This dish has the flavor and aroma of a chili that has simmered all day—and only you have to know it hasn't. Dress it up with a dollop of sour cream and sliced green onions, and serve it with Cheesy Cheddar Corn Bread.
1 pound ground round
2 teaspoons salt-free chili powder blend (such as The Spice Hunter)
1 (14-ounce) package frozen seasoned corn and black beans (such as Pictsweet)
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
1 (15-ounce) can seasoned tomato sauce for chili (such as Hunt's Family Favorites)
Reduced-fat sour cream (optional)
Sliced green onions (optional)
How to Make It
Combine beef and chili powder blend in a large Dutch oven. Cook 6 minutes over medium-high heat or until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain and return to pan.
Stir in frozen corn mixture, broth, and tomato sauce; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Ladle chili into bowls. Top each serving with sour cream and onions, if desired.
I made this recipe tonight. I used ground turkey (browned with bell peppers, onions, and minced garlic), added additional seasonings (cumin, seasoned salt, chili packet, garlic) diced tomatoes, fiesta corn as well as canned corn and canned black beans (rinsed). My family loved it. Said it tasted better than traditional chili. I will definitely make this again. Taking left overs for lunch tomorrow.
I made this tonight. It was a little bland so added aTBSP of Cumin, a TBSP of Cocoa powder, lots of diced peppers and onions and some red kidney beans. Salt and Pepper as well and a pinch of garlic. Then it was great. :)
I could not find salt-free chili powder, seasoned corn and black beans or tomato sauce for chili. So what I used was a packet of McCormick's mild, lower sodium chili seasoning, a whole can of corn, whole can of black beans and a regular can of tomato sauce. I also sauteed some onions and garlic which I then mixed in with the meat. It was very quick and easy and tasted good. I still felt like it could have used some more seasonings. I'm sure if I would have been able to find the specific ingredients listed, it might have turned out more flavorful. In retrospect, I probably should have added a teaspoon or 2 of some regular chili powder. I'll definitely make this again with some tweaks, as it's an easy recipe to play with. Also, this recipe was only 4 points per serving for Weight Watchers. That's definitely a bonus!
This chili was really good (and maybe better than my own recipe that I have been making for years!) I did modify it a bit since I was not able to find several of the ingredients. I used a can of black beans and a can of corn both rinsed and drained. I had probably 1.5 - 2 lbs of 93% lean ground beef on hand so I used more beef than called for and I added 1/2 a package of the McCormick chili seasoning while browning the beef. Also had to substitute regular tomato sauce and I added the other half of the McCormick seasoning package to the sauce. Topped with sour cream, green onions, and cilantro.
