Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 - 27oz can Mild Chili Beans (90 cal/0.5 cup)
    1 - 26.5oz can Black Beans, drained & rinsed (105 cal/0.5 cup)
    2 - 14.5oz cans Petite Diced Tomatos (25 cal/0.5 cup)
    1 - 6oz can Tomato Paste (30 cal/1.2oz)
    1 - 15.25oz can Whole Kernel Sweet Yellow Corn, drained (60 cal/0.5 cup)
    1 - large onion, chopped (57 cal/ total)
    3 - cups water
    3 - Tbsp Chili Powder
    1 - Tbsp Salt
    1 - Tbsp Garlic Powder

Directions

In a large pot, saute the onion using cooking spray. (You can use oil or butter but it will add calories.)
Once the onion is soft, add the rest of the ingredients and stir thouroughly.
If you prefer to add meat, brown ground beef or turkey and add it to the pot or make it on the side so you can feed vegetarians and meat-eaters with the same meal.
Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for 30 minutes.
This is not very spicy so you may want to spice it up with some hot sauce.
This will make about 12 cups. Each cup should be around 148 calories unless your ingredients are different from mine.

Happy eating!

    Reading the posts regarding the spiciness of this recipe, I decided to make one of the cans of tomatoes one with added jalapenos. I also added a big clove of garlic as I cooked the onions. I usually just use water to 'saute' onions - makes them soft but doesn't brown them. Great recipe! - 9/9/09

    Great recipe! I like my chili spicy, so I diced up some pickled jalapenos and added some cayenne pepper. I plan to share this with my other vegetarian friends. This is easy, inexpensive to make, and feeds quite a few people! - 12/31/08

    This chili was excellent! I added some Chipotle Jalapeno Tobasco for a little extra zip and a clove of fresh garlic. I will definitely make this again! - 11/23/08
