• 1) 2 onions chopped
  • 2) 1 green pepper chopped
  • 3) 1 large can diced tomatoes
  • 4) 1 large can tomato sauce (try and find kind with least amount of sugar/calories as you can)
  • 5) Half a small can of tomato paste
  • 6) 1 large can kidney beans
  • 7) 1 small can chick peas
  • 8) 1 small can black beans
  • 9) Chili powder, curry powder, garlic, cayenne, salt, pepper, smoked paprika


  • Fry veggies all together in large skillet
  • Once veggies seem just about done, add them to a large pot that has all your sauces
  • Add spices to mix according to taste preference (I just season randomly by adding small amounts at first and add more of what I think it needs)
  • Lots of chili powder!
  • It’s nice to have it simmer all day to develop all the flavors. If you plan to eat around 6-7, I would have it on by 2. There’s no such thing as cooking it for too long, the flavors will just get better with time!
  • Add reduced fat mozzarella, and any other toppings you’d like once finished
  • If you’d like a meat option, I would use 1 pound of extra lean 97% fat free turkey meat and brown at the beginning in a separate pan
  • Once veggies are mostly cooked, add mix to the meat and cook together for a few minutes
  • Then add veggie/meat medley to the sauce pot and let simmer all together for 4-5 hours
