This ground beef is omitted in this chili recipe. Instead it uses chicken sausage (al fresco), beans, tomatoes, chipotle chilies in adobe sauce, chicken broth and spices. It is OFF THE HOOK! Total calories go down from over 440 to just 220 per serving. Low in fat, cholesterol and trans fats. But high in fiber. Just watch the sour cream and cheese and this is a healthy dinner or lunch.
