An easy chili recipe with lean ground beef and low in calories and fat. Most often when I want chili I want beef not chicken or turkey. This simple chili lends itself to many variations while still remaining low in calories.

Cook ground beef and onions together in a skillet until meat is browned and onion is almost clear. If using 93/7 lean ground beef a small amount of oil might be needed to prevent sticking.
Combine all ingredients in large pot. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour.
Note: many variations are possible. Try adding green chilies, cubed potatoes, rice, light or fat free cheddar or whatever you can imagine.
NOTE: Calories calculated by this system differ radically from my own. Using the values given on each of the items in the recipe I calculated only 180 Calories per 1 cup serving. 'Zaar might not be adjusting for extra lean groung beef.
NOTE: For a milder version reduce chili powder, cumin and red pepper by 1/2.
