Here is a recipe for Confetti Chili that is a great dish to serve on Big Game Day, or any other day when only chili will do!
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1-pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped vegetables (zucchini, summer squash, red/green/orange peppers, mushrooms)
  • I medium onion chopped
  • 1 can (14 ½ ounces) diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 can (14 ½ ounces) kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can (10 ¾ ounces) tomato soup
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilis (option to use jalapenos)
  • 1 package (1.25 ounces) chili seasoning mix (option to use 'spicy' or 'hot')
  • ½ tablespoon cumin (option to use 1 tablespoon)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves (be careful with cloves - they can be very strong)
  1. Add ground beef, increase the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently for 8-10 minutes, until no trace of pink remains. Drain off any fat.
  2. Add celery and chopped vegetables. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, about 7 minutes.
  3. Add diced tomatoes, beans, tomato soup, and diced green chiles.
  4. Lower the heat, cover, and let simmer for 1-2 hours (more if you have the time), stirring occasionally. Makes 6 servings, so if you are expecting a bigger crowd, double the recipe. Adapted from Eating Thin for Life, Anne M. Fletcher, M.S., R.D.
