TIU Meal: Chili in a Bowl

Thursday evening…

Simply means Friday is a few hours away. Which also means the premier of Thor is 24 hours away! AHHH! Anyways, got a little side tracked. Ahem. Tonight’s post is another recipe from the Tone It Up plan. I can’t get enough of their recipes and neither can by boyfriend. He helped me prepare this yummy meal last night, very proud of him! So let’s get started…

ingredients

Very few ingredients are needed, which is why I make this meal a lot. These are also ingredients I usually have on hand at all times. What you need…

  • 1 Bell Pepper (any color will do.. I just happened to have an orange one)
  • 4 oz of Ground Turkey (I always use Perdue.. less fat and calories)
  • 1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Can of Kidney Beans
  • 1/4 Cup of Diced Jalapenos
  • 1/4 Cup of Onion, Diced
  • 1 tsp. of Chili Powder (you can put as much as you like depending how hot you want it)
  • 1/2 tsp. of Pepper + Salt
  • 1 cup of Vegetable Broth
  • Optional: add a cup of water, depending on the consistency you want

meat

In a skillet, start by browning your turkey meat. I made them into small patties and used a potato masher to mash up the meat… duh. Cook the meat until brown.

veggies

While your meat is cooking, start dicing up your veggies.

broth

In a medium sauce pan, add your kidney beans and vegetable broth. Bring the liquid to a simmer.

seasonings

Once your beans are simmering, add in your tomatoes and seasonings. Stir ingredients together and turn heat down low. Let this cook for about 5 minutes.

fry

Add in your veggies with the turkey meat.

mix together

Stir together until the veggies start to soften up. Optional: add in 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil and salt to give the veggies more flavor and to speed up the process.

cooking

After your veggies are cooked, the meat, and tomatoes are hot… add all ingredients into the medium sauce pan. Give this a little stir and add in your cup of water. Let the water heat up for about 3 minutes.

chili

Pour into a bowl and enjoy!

This makes about 6 servings, so pack this for your lunch for work the next day! Simple, easy, and healthy. Did I mention how amazing this tastes? I love that it’s not too spicy or hot. It’s the perfect amount of heat.

    • They actually list this as a meal that you would eat to “tone up” but there is barely any fat or calories in this meal. So I kind of look at is as a slim down dinner and a toning meal. If that makes sense.

    • The plan doesn’t have a ton of “slim down” recipes per say but I mainly eat the toning recipes and just mix and match different foods in order to make it lighter to meet my slim down needs. You’ll start seeing what foods to take away in order to still follow the plan and make it fit your goals. That’s why I love the plan, it’s very healthy and you can still follow the recipes but tweak a few ingredients in order to fit your lifestyle/goals. Good luck on your journey!
