Brown the meat
Season while browning
- 2 lbs 96% lean sirloin or 99% ground turkey or chicken
- 1 tsp ground onion
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
Fire it up
Throw the following in the slow cooker (or do this stove top on low to medium low)
- 4 (15 oz) cans beans, strained (Organics tri-bean blend, garbanzo, kidney, black, white northern, porkNbeans, or Ranch style pinto beans)
- 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes, strained
- 1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, strained
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1/4 tsp Garam Masala (this is a blend of coriander, pepper, cumin, cardamom, and cinnamon)
- 1 Tbsp high quality chili powder
- 1/2 tsp Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- 1/4 cup crumbled bacon
Strain the browned meat and stir in to chili mixture and it will be ready to eat in 30 minutes, BUT it will taste best if you let it simmer for 2-4 hours *wink*

Here is the recipe from Tosca Reno’s theEatCleanDiet.com site.
LOVED the eggs in this dish!! Soaked up the flavor of everything!
Lighting is a little yellow in my kitchen at night
Mine came out darker than her picture – I don’t know how she could use molasses and soy sauce and have her noodles appear so white! Ah, professional food photography how you trick my eyes!
My addition: because my husband is a beastly bodybuilder and needs more protein (and a Texan, so I picked red meat) – I added 1lbs blend of extra lean ground sirloin + extra lean ground turkey and mixed another 1/2 batch of sauce with it for flavoring. Tosca recommends chicken or tofu, but we eat chicken every day so I wanted to switch it up.
Will definitely make this again!

Jamie Eason shared this recipe on Bodybulding.com
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray muffin pan with canola or olive oil.
- Mix all your ingredients together in one large bowl.
- Roll the mixture into balls and place in muffin pan. Muffins should be about the size of a racquetball.
- Bake for 40 minutes.
Makes 12 muffins.
Women: 2 muffins
Men: 4 muffins
- 1 lb ground “Churkey” (1/2 lb extra lean ground turkey + 1/2 lb ground chicken breast)
- 1/4 C chopped cilantro
- 2 Tbsp salsa (I used homemade salsa, so it was very chunky, not so pureed)
- 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp chopped onion
Mix all ingredients until well blended. Pan-fry, grill, or even bake these puppies. Serve them on whole wheat buns, pita thins, corn tortillas or chopped over a fresh salad.
To create great flavors, mix several kinds of meats! Extra lean ground pork+ground sirloin+extra lean turkey is a tasty combo as well. I use this method in many styles
I made a double batch and shaped them into either 1/2 pounder patties (man size) or 1/4 pounders. Wrapped them individually in plastic wrap and put them all into a ziploc so I could pull them out for a quick meal depending on who I will be serving.
