Mexican Chili

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

I am NORMAL as of today! Well, at least my BMI is normal, can't say much for anything else LOL. I still have 11 more pounds to goal and I can not believe how far I have come on Medifast. I am truly loving this plan and it is really working for me. I hope I can get these last pounds off by August before I head on vacation with my hubby. I am not sure where we are going to venture off to, but it doesn't really matter because the hubs and I will be together :)

You may notice a little slow down with me posting recipes on my blog. This is mainly because I am in the process of moving to Colorado and I only have 3 weeks left! So I have to start using the food I have in my freezer and my fridge. I still have boxes of Morning Star Farms and Boca products just sitting in the freezer. Not to mention frozen cauliflower crusts and other meats. Since I can't take these items with me on my long drive, I need to eat the before I leave which doesn't leave me much to try out new recipes. I will try to post some recipes in the meantime, but it may not be as often, at least not until I get to CO. So here is a recipe I cooked up with the inspiration of several people on the Medifast forums. I love the addition of the laughing cow cheese because it helps give the chili even more spice as well as making it more creamy. Since 99% fat free meat can often be dry, the laughing cow cheese and added Mexican cheese helps with the dryness. Very good! Enjoy the recipe!

Mexican Chili

5.25 oz 99% fat free lean ground turkey or beef, cooked (3/4 Lean)
1 oz 2% reduced fat Mexican Cheese Blend (1/4 Lean)
1/2 cup Rotel canned diced tomatoes with chilies with some of the liquid (1 Green)
2 tsp low sodium taco seasoning (3 Condiments)
1 Queso Fresco and Chipotle Light Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge (1/2 Healthy Fat)

Brown ground beef and reserve 5.25 oz cooked ground beef and save the other ground beef for another meal. Combine the 5.25 oz cooked ground beef, 2 tbsp Mexican cheese, rotel tomatoes, taco seasoning, and laughing cow cheese wedge until cheese is melted over medium heat. Serve with 2 tbsp Mexican cheese on top. Enjoy!

1 Lean, 1 Green, 3 Condiments and 1/2 Healthy Fat. You still need 2 Greens and 1 1/2 Healthy Fats for the day. Cauliflower mashed "Potatoes" would be great with this chili. Just mash the cooked cauliflower  (1 cup for 2 servings) with 2 wedges of light laughing cow cheese of your choice but don't forget the other 1/2 of a healthy fat for later!
