Day 7: 30 Days of Clean Eating | Black Bean Chili Recipe

Black Bean Chili Recipe
It’s Day 7 of my 30 Days of Clean Eating Challenge.  Here is a fantastic recipe for Black Bean Chili that we make often.  It’s so easy and it perfect to eat for lunch and dinner.

I like to top mine with a little non-fat plain yogurt (instead of sour cream) and a little sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese.

You can easily put this in the crockpot too and cook all day (8 hours) on low.  Just brown the turkey meat first and then add all the other ingredients and stir.


1 TSP of coconut oil or olive oil

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 large onion, chopped

2 TBSP of chili powder

1 Tsp of cheyene pepper

1/2 TBSP dried basil

1 lb. bag of dry black beans (soak 8 – 10  hours prior to using)

4-5 Whole tomatoes, cut into small pieces

1 lb of ground turkey


1.  In oil, cook onion, garlic and turkey meat until the meat is browned.

2.  Stir in beans, tomatoes, chili powder, cayenne pepper, basil.

3.  Bring to a boil then reduce to low heat and Cover.

4.  Cook for about 2 hours.

      I actually don’t add water. The juice from the tomatoes works for me. You could add 1/2 – 1 cup of water if you’d like more liquid. :-)
