Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    While this recipe calls for ground beef, you could certainly try using ground turkey or chicken. Ground poultry is great when you’re counting calories.
  • tip 2
    Don’t limit your toppings to just cheddar cheese. You can top this hearty bowl of chili with fresh chopped cilantro, red onion, sour cream, corn chips or even macaroni noodles!
  • tip 3
    Cornbread or biscuits slathered with butter, either one makes a great side dish on chili night. And, you can be assured of clean bowls when you serve up one of these bready sides!
