Low Fat Chili

BY : PUBLISHED : September 24th, 2012 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

The fall is here, and in the northwest the evenings are getting colder.  This low fat chili is really easy to make, and comes together pretty quick.  It is a great option if you are hosting a dinner.  Serve it with rice, avocados, cilantro, and jalapenos.  Or just have it the way it is. Enjoy!

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $1.35
