"This chili has always been great during football season--and the rest of the year! But I like to make it a little healthier by reducing the fat and sodium content. Sprinkle with red onion, cilantro or diced avocado (optional)."

This has now become my "go-to" Chilli. It is rich and delicious. Full of flavours that make us ask for seconds and thirds.

This is our chili recipe. Easy, healthi-er, and the fam loves it!

Love the healthy version! Tastes the same as the regular boilermaker chili!!

Made this today and by far it has been the best chili that I have ever made!!! I used fire roasted diced tomatoes and ground turkey instead of the ground beef. Also, I added chipotle hot sauce...

Super yummy! whole family enjoyed it! will forever use as my go to chili recipe.

Thought it tasted low calorie. It was OK. Though we had to skip half the chili powder. And it makes a lot more than 12 servings!

I am still getting rave reviews about this chili after serving it at a holiday get together! I will definitely make it again!
