Carol's Crockpot Chili

Carol's Crockpot Chili ... Add a lil spice in your life!

1 pound 75% lean/25% fat raw ground beef
2 small onion(s)
2 small jalapeƱo pepper(s)
1 item bell pepper(s)
1 medium zucchini
30 oz Red Kidney Beans
15 oz fat-free chicken broth

Brown onions and peppers. Add beef and brown.
Toss chopped zucchini and beans into crock pot. Add your favorite seasonings (I used Mrs. Dash Southwest). Pour pepper/onion/beef mixture over the top. Add broth and cook on low for 8 hours.

Makes 12 1/2 cup servings. You can clearly lower the points by using a lighter ground meat, I just happen to be trying to use things in my freezer.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
