I LOVE making food that is healthy...but you'd NEVER know it!  This dish is SO full of flavor and deliciousness, you'd never know it was a "skinny" dish.  And even better? It's made in the slow cooker so you don't have to do a lot of work! My kind of meal.  Our house smelled AMAZING while this was cooking. We almost didn't want to wait the full 6 hours to let this cook. The weather in LA has been pretty cold (yes, 30s IS cold for LA. If you want to laugh at us, check this out ) and this dish was perfect for a cold, winter night. Filled with veggies & chicken, I did have to add just a pinch (or 2) of low-fat cheese & a tiny serving of light sour cream because it wouldn't be chili otherwise.  I served the chili atop a piece of corn bread casserole. That recipe comes tomorrow.  Big thank you to Gina at skinnytaste for the recipe!

  2. When you locate an extraordinary formula that cooks well outside offer it with family; particularly the basic hints that influenced it to work out so well
