Spicy Chili

This quick and easy Spicy Chili recipe is the perfect winter time comfort food. Its super healthy and with a slice of avocado as garnish it makes a complete “Game On Diet” meal. Its packed with veggies, crabs (beans and tomato), protein(beef or chicken and soy beans) and fats (olive oil and avocado garnish)! It freezes well too, so make up a BIG batch and add in some extra veggies or beans if you have them lying around . The leftovers go great over half a baked sweet potato with some sour cream and cheese. 1 cup of this chili is around 200 calories so eat up and no need to feel guilty if you have a second, or third serving!
