Cowboy Beef & Bean Chili

September/October 2013

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (16 votes)

Anything but dainty, this healthy cowboy beef and bean chili recipe is hearty with the addition of mushrooms and beer. To keep the saturated fat low, we use one pound of ground beef and add whole-grain bulgur to boost the volume and fiber in this chili recipe. After all the ingredients are added to the pot, we like to slowly simmer our chili for close to an hour to develop the best flavor, but if you’re in a hurry, reduce the liquid by half and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.

Best chili ever!

I've made this numerous times due to its low calorie and sodium. The spices are the real winner here...this chili just tastes incredible!

Tastes great, smells delicious, and no one has ever turned it down.

Really good, easy to make and perfect to bring to lunch at work.

I used chicken breast pieces instead of beef and added red peppers and corn. When I reheated it I added a bit of beer to thin it out - and amp up the flavors.

Will definitely be making this again!

Great recipe!

I'm always trying new chili recipes. This one turned out surprisingly good. I followed the recipe as written, including cooking it for about an hour to reduce the liquids. Next time, I plan on adding in some more vegetables, including bell pepper.

Easy, tasty, healthy
