I found this recipe on A Black Girl’s Guide To Weight Loss and just had to try it.
I wanted to skip the turkey but I figured I needed a double dose of protein since I worked out HARD the previous week. This recipe yielded quite a few servings in my 3-quart Crockpot. I had enough for lunch and dinner for at least 3 days. I also had enough to freeze too!
I really should have used more chili powder as I 2 tbsp didn’t give it enough of a “chili” taste to me.
I used all organic vegetables and skipped the cheese because, well…y’all know my cheese issues. 8) And of course you can skip the rice but I’m not one of those anti-carbs kid, so rice it was!
