Vegetable Chili

Weight loss always tops the list of the most popular new year’s resolutions. After a couple weeks of big dinners, drinking and lots and lots of Christmas baking, it is at the top of my list. I feel like I need a week’s worth of fruit and veggies to counteract all the sugar and alcohol. This chili is just the ticket. I first discovered it several years ago when I was on Weight Watchers and I still make it regularly. It is full of vegetables, filling and super tasty. As an added bonus, you can make a huge batch of it in the crockpot and it freezes well.
