15 Minute Taco Chili: Serves 3-4

1 lb ground meat- You can use beef, chicken, or turkey (however you like your tacos!)
1 bell pepper, diced -any color you prefer
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis including the juice
2 cups of kale, shredded into bite size pieces (optional)
1 cup cheese, you can use cheddar, jack, pepper jack, or some store have a “fiesta blend”
Taco Seasoning- make my homemade version here!

To start brown up your meat and pour off the excess grease. Over medium heat add the onion, garlic and pepper to the browned meat. Stir them around for 2-3 minutes until the veggies soften.  Then add in the taco seasoning. I usually add in about 2-3 tablespoons. Mix this around to coat.  Then add in the diced tomato can and then fill the can 1/4 of the way up with water to loosen stuck tomatoes and get the extra juice out of the can and add that to the skillet. Stir this around and let it bubble up for about a minute then add in the kale.  Stir and allow the kale to wilt down.  Once the kale is wilted turn the heat to medium-low and top with the cheese.  Cover the pan for another minute until the cheese melts. Then it’s ready to serve!  See below for some of my toppings ideas!

TACO TIPS

-Use any kind of ground meat that you have or prefer.  Thats the beauty of this quick chili, it is versatile too!
-I have made this dish with and without the kale.  If you do add it, I do recommend that you cut it into bite size pieces that way it doesn’t get too stringy. If you don’t like kale, use spinach!
-Taco seasoning- once I hade my own I have never purchased it never again. I love making my own spice mixtures. I double the recipe and keep it sealed in a mason jar in my pantry! Get MY RECIPE!
