    main meals | Adults will love how easy this chili-based meal is to prepare. Both kids and adults will love its taste.


    Ingredients



    1 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
    2/3 pound raw extra lean ground beef [I use ground turkey breast]
    2 medium onion(s), chopped
    29 oz canned stewed tomatoes, Mexican-style
    2 1/2 cup canned tomato juice [I think tomato juice is not Core; maybe use 1/2 tomato sauce and 1/2 water?]
    4 oz canned green chili peppers, diced, drained
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat macaroni, elbow [I had some small whole wheat pasta...not elbow...worked great]
    31 oz canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed
    1/4 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese [fat-free cheese for Core! ]


    Instructions

    Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat until meat is browned, about 10 minutes; drain off fat.
    Stir in stewed tomatoes including juice, tomato juice, chili peppers and chili powder. Bring mixture to a boil.
    Stir in macaroni and beans; return to boiling. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until macaroni is tender, about 15 minutes. Spoon chili into bowls and sprinkle with cheese. Yields about 1 cup of chili and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cheese per serving.
