Warm up a chilly night with this easy chili recipe. It's made in one big pot and feeds a gang. It's so low calorie you can top it off with a small sprinkle of reduced fat cheddar cheese if you'd like.


  • 2 lbs. 95% fat-free ground chuck
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cans (15 oz. each) no-salt-added kidney beans
  • 2 cans (14½ oz. each) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (28 oz.) tomato purée
  • 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce (gluten free if needed)
  • 3 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, optional
  • ⅓ cup ketchup (gluten free if needed)
  • 1 cup water


In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, cook beef until browned. Drain beef and transfer to a bowl. Set aside.

In the same pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, jalapeños and garlic and sauté until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.

Add reserved beef and remaining ingredients and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
