This week's topic: Success Secret #2 You Can't Eat it if You Don't Have It!
Recipes of the Week: Whole-Wheat Chili-Mac
6 PointsPlus Value
Prep time: 18 min
Cook time: 30 min
This one-pot hearty meal can easily be altered to meet your family's tastes. Try subbing ground turkey breast for the beef and whole-wheat spirals for the elbows.
Ingredients 12 oz uncooked 93% lean ground beef
1 medium uncooked onion(s), chopped
14 1/2 oz canned stewed tomatoes, Mexican-style, undrained
1 1/4 cup(s) canned tomato sauce
2 Tbsp canned green chili peppers, diced, drained
2 tsp chili powder 1 tsp ground cumin
1 cup(s) uncooked whole wheat elbow macaroni
15 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is browned, about 10 minutes; drain off fat. Stir in undrained stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili peppers, chili powder and cumin; bring to a boil.
Stir in uncooked macaroni and kidney beans. Return to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until macaroni is tender, about 15 minutes. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.
Serve with grated parmesan topping, fat-free sour cream and low-fat or fat-free shredded Mexican cheese, if desired (could affect PointsPlus values).
Have a great week!
