rock'm sock'm chili

Lately we've been eating a lot of rock'm sock'm chili based on a recipe from the barleyfoods website. (http://www.barleyfoods.org/) I've added some ingredients to add more flavor and some ingredients to help with milk supply. Like the lactation granola bites, the additions of brewer's yeast and flax seed can be left out, but are healthy additions even if you aren't working on your milk supply.

Rock'm Sock'm Chili

  • 2 tsps olive oil

  • 1 lb. lean ground meat (we usually use turkey)

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1/2 cup pearl barley

  • 1 28oz can diced tomatoes

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 Tbs chili powder

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne

  • 4 Tbs brewer's yeast

  • 3 Tbs milled flax seed

  • 2 15oz cans of beans (recipe calls for pinto and/or red - i usually do one of black beans)

  • optional garnish suggestions: cheese, sour cream, avocado

heat oil in a pot. cook the meat and onion. add everything else except the beans and garnishes. cover and cook 30 min over medium-low heat. add undrained beans (when using black beans i drain and rinse them) and cook 15-20 more minutes. serve in bowls with desired garnishes.

SUPER easy meal!

no peppers? i don't think i can make any chili without peppers. or corn. gotta get that amino acid combo with the black beans and the corn, afterall.
of course, i've been known to put carrots and broccoli in my chili too, so...
