Lone Star Corn Chili

Lone Star Corn Chili

This one gets Cliff's vote of approval. He loves a thick chili and when I added corn (that four-letter vegetable men love), he promptly declared it a winner!

Serves 4 (1 1/2 cups)

8 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cups (one 16-ounce can) tomatoes, coarsley chopped and undrained
2 cups Healthy Request tomato juice or any reduced-sodium tomato juice
1 1/2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 1/2 teaspoons JO's Chili Seasoning
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Chedder cheese

In a large sauce pan sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, brown meat, onion, and green pepper. Stir in undrained tomatoes and tomato juice. Add corn and JO's Chili Seasoning. Mix well to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. When serving, evenly sprinkle about 1 1/2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese over top of each bowl.

HINT: Substitute any reputable brand for JO's Chili Seasoning.
