DASH Diet Chili

Joey Wolf


I'm trying the DASH Diet my Dr recommended. This is the first recipe I've made. I did make a few minor changes due to personal taste and what I had on hand, I don't think it really changed it that much. I will post the recipe as is and note my changes along the way in ().

pinch tips: Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Hints




20 Min


1 Hr


1 lb
95% lean ground sirloin
bag frozen onion/pepper mix
2-3 clove
garlic, minced/squeezed thru garlic press
14 1/2 oz
can diced tomatoes (no salt added)
15 1/2 oz
can tomato sauce (no salt added)
15 1/2 oz
can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
15 oz
can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbsp
chili powder
2 Tbsp
bag frozen california mix veggies
1 c
frozen corn

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef (I used ground turkey breast). Cook 3-5 min.
ADD peppers, onions, and garlic. (I omitted the peppers and used dried garlic flakes; add garlic with liquids).Cook an additional 5 min on med heat, until the onions are translucent and soft. *You do not want the garlic to brown it will be bitter.*
Add tomatoes, beans and seasonings. Mix well; simmer 5 min and add remaining veggies. I added 1/4 tsp of ground Cumin and used frozen tomatoes from my garden last summer. I added 2 C of water and 2 Tbs of tomato paste. I did add the corn;but not the Calif mix (that just would not be chili for me):0)
Simmer 30-60 min. Serves 12: 1 C Servings

You may use any combo of veggies an interesting suggestion was sweet potato chunks??? Fresh or frozen is best; rinse and drain all canned veggies to reduce the sodium levels.

Serve with low fat cheese and baked tortilla strips.
