Tortilla Chili Verde
I love a meal that can be stretched and reheated throughout the week. Sunday is an ideal day to prepare a big batch of chili to have during the start of a new week. Having a healthy recipe on hand keeps me from ordering out and starts the week off on the right foot. Another fantastic aspect of this recipe is that you only use one pot for super quick cleanup.
This chili made with grass-fed ground beef, green salsa and fresh vegetables covers all the bases for a healthy recipe. Instead of using oil, I begin cooking the ground beef first and then add in my veggies which will cook in the juices from the meat. You could also use ground turkey or chicken if you prefer.
The secret ingredient in this recipe is corn tortillas. The tortillas are added to the chili and then simmered for 20 minutes. This breaks the tortillas down completely and they become a part of the broth adding a nice roasted corn background, much like tortilla soup.
