Chili - - Doc's Chili $5.88

This recipe is adapted from The Biggest Loser books and website - it's called Doc's Chili because apparently the doctor created the recipe and they made it all the time. I don't know any of this for sure because, while I'd do anything to meet Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper too, I'm not about to consume enough of this or any other food to qualify for the show. Instead, I'll do her workouts and eat their food to try my best to look like a Biggest Winner!

Doc's Chili
3 cups chopped yellow onions .60

1 pound lean ground turkey $2.29
2 tablespoons chili powder .10
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried) .10
1 teaspoon ground cumin .05
2 tablespoons chopped garlic .10
1 1/2 cups cooked pinto beans (one 15-ounce can, rinsed and drained ) .69
1 1/2 cups cooked black beans (one 15-ounce can, rinsed and drained ) .59
3 cups diced tomatoes (or one 28-ounce can roasted diced tomatoes, undrained) .49
1 cup fat free chicken broth .29

1/2 cup black olives .39
1/2 cup chopped green onions or chopped fresh cilantro .20
$ 5.88
Spray a large saucepan or Dutch oven with a few sprays of cooking oil spray. Add onion and sauté over medium-high heat until soft and just starting to brown. Add ground turkey and cook over medium high heat, until cooked through; about 6 minutes. Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, garlic, beans, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes.

Chili always improves with age, so let it simmer as long as you can!

Serve in about 1 cup size portions. Garnish with olives and green onions or cilantro and serve immediately.

1 cup is 324 calories, 10 grams fat, 28 carbs and 22 protein.
