When the weather turns cold I gravitate toward comforting meals. Typically a chili or stew hits the spot. But the same old chili can get a little tiresome when eating it over and over again. We loved the looks of this fruit and nut chili
from Better Homes and Gardens. But it was not completely bariatric appropriate, so here is the modified version of Harvest Chili.
Harvest chili is perfect for a cold evening. A nice variety from the traditional chili recipes.
Chop onion, garlic, and bell peppers.
Cook beef, onion, garlic, and bell peppers in a large Dutch Oven over medium high heat.
Add all spices, kidney beans, green chilies, diced apples, diced tomatoes, and slivered almonds to beef mixture. Stir until well combined.
Add chicken broth until desired consistency is reached. Simmer 30-60 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste, top with shredded sharp cheddar cheese if desired.
