It's National Chili Month, people! And you know what that means, right? It's time to brush up on your chili-makin' skills and learn how to whip up a vat of HG's Bocalicious Chili. Needless to say, this is one of our personal favorites. Whether you like yours super-hot or mild & free of spice, HG's Bocalicious Chili will save you countless calories and fat grams compared to most other versions of the stuff. HG Tip: Eat it straight, over shirataki noodles, on baked potatoes or on fat-free hot dogs. Mmmmmmmmmm!
2 packets Boca Meatless Ground Burger (OR 4 Original Boca Meatless Burger patties)
2 14-oz. cans stewed tomatoes (preferably Mexican style)*
1 small onion; diced
1 8-oz. can red kidney beans
2 oz. fat-free shredded cheddar cheese
cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder, onion powder
Begin by microwaving Boca "meat" per the box's instructions. If using patties, once cool enough to handle, cut them into bite-sized pieces. Spray a large pot with nonstick cooking spray. Over medium heat, sauté onion for about 5 minutes. Add stewed tomatoes and Boca, reduce heat to a low-medium flame, and continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Season to taste with cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder and onion powder. Lastly, stir in beans and cook for about 3 - 4 more minutes. Pour chili into 4 bowls and immediately top with cheese!
