The Tasty Health Benefits of Chili Recipe

Chili recipe is an ultimate cold-weather comfort food. More than just delicious, this healthy chili is a simple one-pot meal that can be made with ingredients you already have in your hands. In fact it can easily be pushed to feed a crowd on any Sunday brunches or any given Game Day.

The main ingredients of a chili recipe are different beans and ground beef. We all know the benefits of beef. Just make sure that you use leaner meat for healthy recipes. Now comes the beans; beans are available either in canned or dried. I prefer the dried ones as this way you can control the salt and other preservatives which you do not want to add. Beans are an excellent source of fiber, it provide an average of 6g of fiber per ½ cup. They contain both insoluble and soluble fiber, which may help in lowering the cholesterol, it also improves glucose control and prevent colon cancer and diverticulitis. To cook beans, make sure you soak them in normal water for overnight and then boil them and cook until it’s soft. 

Today I am sharing an easy chili recipe that you can make easily on any given day. The flavors are enticing and mouth-watering. But genuinely chili recipe is no rocket science everyone has their own recipe and ingredients for it. It’s all about creativity in flavors and taste. So just feel free to make some changes or alternatives in this recipe. 

Anyways without wasting time, let’s jot down the recipe –

Recipes with Ground Beef: Beef Samosa and Last minute Lasagna

Ground Beef recipes are one of my favorite recipes and the recipes I am sharing over here are my all-time favorite. As I told you about my Indian friend Neha, she has introduced me with an awesome Indian snack called “samosa”, we can relate it with puffs; although they are fried and not baked! Believe me, the flavors still tickle my senses. I had tried the vegetarian version of this samosa filled with potatoes. But today I am sharing an awesome recipe of samosa with ground beef i.e. Beef Samosa. It’s a delight, mouthwatering and perfect snacks for parties too. Serve it with dips or just with some ketchup and you are good to go. 

The second simple recipe is Last Minute Lasagna! Who don’t like Lasagna but what’s more fascinating about this recipe is, that it is super quick and simple to make. This could be one of the real good dinner ideas for your weekend.

If I talk about the benefits of beef, then I would always suggest you to get lean beef for all your preparations. Beef contributes into the daily protein food intake, its rich in Vitamin B12, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous and many more vital nutrients. Not only does it provide you with a bundle of essential nutrients, but it has one of the highest concentrations of these nutrients compared to many other proteins. Choose leanest cuts like Loin and Round for better health results.

Anyways without wasting much time, let’s start cooking. First I will share the recipe of Beef samosa and later the lasagna.
