    Recipe Introduction

    Chili is one of those dishes that can take hours (even days) to prepare in some parts of the nation, but for those of us who can't devote that much time to cutting up exactly the right kind of beef, mixing up a secret blend of spices, or stirring in some surprise ingredient (cinnamon? coffee? or even stranger ones?!), here's a simple but spectacularly good chili that anyone can fix in a jiffy.
    Serves 4 (1 1/4 cups)
    *freezes well

    List of Ingredients

    • 8 ounces extra-lean ground turkey or beef
    • 1 cup (one 8-ounce can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce

    • 1 3/4 cups (one 14 1/2-ounce can) Swanson Beef
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 1/2 cup (one 2.5-ounce jar) sliced mushrooms, drained
    • 10 ounces (one 16-ounce can) red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1 tablespoon chili seasoning
    • 2 teaspoons pourable Splenda
    • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


    1. In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Spray a slow cooker container with butter-flavored cooking spray.
