Fully Loaded Chili Recipe

Fully Loaded Chili Recipe

With lean ground beef, four types of beans and lots of seasonings and toppings, this chili is truly "fully-loaded." But those aren't the only heavyweights in here; every serving provides a hefty 26 g protein and 11 g fiber. —Cynthia Baca, Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania
