Families have gone to war over chili recipes! Everyone has an idea about what should go in chili. I love a thick, meaty chili with loads of beans and vegetables. Thankfully my family agrees!

I love this recipe. It's great for a crowd, and t really requires little work on my part. The slow cooker does the work.

You might be tempted to skip the steps of searing the meat and cooking the onions and spices, but don't! They're adding valuable layers of flavor to your chili.

I love to serve this chili on game day alongside my favorite Skinny Fiesta Dip, which is a slimmed-down version of seven-layer taco dip. Yum! (Need more game day recipes? Click here!)

Each hearty, heaping one-cup serving has just 277 calories, less than 4 grams of fat, and a whopping 14 grams of fiber and plenty of lean sirloin for flavor! It's sure to keep you full until the game is over.

Who do you think will win the Super Bowl this year?
