Ww Friendly Chili

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ellie_

We enjoyed this super fast and easy chili, however I made this on a day when I just wanted to use what I had in the house, so made some changes to the recipe. For example, the original recipe called for 1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans - as I didn't have any I used some frozen corn in its place and for the 1 can of black beans I used 1 can of scarlet runner beans which looked more like black kidney beans. Very good chili which although different with my changes was enjoyed by all. This is a very mild chili--but the chili powder can be increased substancialy for a bit more heat. If following the WW flex plan this is 5 points/serving (1 cup with 2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream)! Recipe source: WW magazine

This was excellent! I ran out of garlic so I just sprinkled some garlic powder in, we also sprinkled low fat cheddar on top instead of the sour cream and chives. It was enjoyed by all, thank you for sharing!
