New Nutrition Tips:



  • To boost vegetables, add 2 cups chopped, mixed red and green peppers and 1 cup chopped, fresh or frozen carrots when browning the meat.

  • To go Vegetarian, dice up one zucchini, one red pepper, one onion, and 8 oz. mushrooms to replace the ground beef, or substitute 16 ounces extra firm tofu (drained and crumbled) for ground beef.

  • To give a Mediterranean twist, top each serving with 1 tablespoon unsalted cashews.

  • To boost whole grains in the Inventive Variations suggestions on the package and website, serve Cincinnati-style in a bowl with whole wheat spaghetti and sprinkle with just a little bit of grated cheese, or serve chili barbecue beef-style in a soft whole grain bun sandwich, or make a Mexican mole sauce by leaving out the meat.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve as a sauce over chicken breasts with brown or wild rice.

  • To cut saturated fat, prepare with 1 pound extra lean ground beef, bison, or turkey, or go Vegetarian.

  • To cut sodium, prepare with no salt added tomato sauce. 

  • To cut added sugar and sodium, halve the amount of barbecue sauce. To further cut added sugar, prepare with 1 teaspoon brown sugar instead of 1 tablespoon.


Inventive Variation:


Serve up this crowd-pleasing chili three ways: Cincinnati-style in a bowl with spaghetti and topped with grated cheese, or barbecue beef-style in a soft bun sandwich, or make a Mexican mole sauce by leaving out the meat above. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve as a sauce over chicken breasts with rice.
