I have 9 of the Best Ever Clean Eating Chili Recipes. You’ll won’t believe some of the ingredients in these, really! It’s winter here and really cold outside. It has snowed more here this winter than it has in years. This is the perfect weather for chili.
The first recipe is an oldie that my husband made for years before we even met when he was a bachelor. It is definitely and man’s kind of recipe. All you do is open several cans like tomatoes and different kinds of beans and dump them in a pot. Well, I shouldn’t say that about men because, it’s my kind too. It’s a real easy peasy go to recipe that we have at our house quite often. I’m just glad my husband introduced me to it.
There are some real interesting clean eating chili recipes here. Have you ever tried chili with pumpkin or sweet potatoes in it. It sounds pretty good to me. There is also chili here with quinoa in it but the real kicker is the chili with applesauce in it. Let me know how they taste if you try them. I haven’t been that brave yet, have you?

This is the best soup to make and eat on a cold winter day. The meat is easy because all you do is cut a pork roast into pieces.

You may need to add more chicken broth of too much of the liquid boils off.

White chicken chili is really popular, there’s a good reason for that. It’s flavorful, light and healthy. It’s particularly easy and more flavorful when made in a slow cooker. I make this for a large group quite often. It’s easy to just throw everything into the slow cooker and let it cook while I’m getting ready. Whether I’m taking it to someone else’s house or having company come to my house. My slow cooker has handles on it with clips that hold the lid on real tight. That makes it especially easy to carry it to someone else’s house.

Ground Chicken – Black Beans – Corn – Tomatoes – Applesauce
I don’t know if you looked at the list of ingredients above but there is a real unusual ingredient in this one. I came upon the idea of using it on accident and it worked great. Yes, it’s the applesauce, I needed some extra sweetness but didn’t want to add sugar or anything like unto it, so I tried the applesauce and I’m glad I did.
6. Amazing 3 Bean Sweet Potato Chili – My Whole Food Life
This is really easy to make. Just combine everything in a pot and turn on the heat. I think it would be real good cooked in a crock pot too. This makes tons so I would put some in the freezer if I were you. It would make a great, I don’t have time to cook tonight, I’m defrosting that chili in the freezer tonight kinda meal.
7. Slow Cooker Chicken Chili – Spend With Pennies
Make this in the crock pot on those days when you are planning to come home late and need dinner already made.

You just may have to add a little extra broth or water to compensate.
8. Crock Pot Sweet Potato Chipotle Chili – Cotter Crunch
Sweet Potatoes – Ground Meat of Choice – Tomatoes – Onion – Cauliflower – Chipotles – Shallot
This is made with ingredients that are easy to get and you might already have in your refrigerator. Can also be made easily in the crock pot. It’s hearty but healthy. You’ll have to try it out. I think you’ll like the addition of the chipotle.
9. Southwestern Turkey Chili – The Gracious Pantry
Chili has always been a comfort food at our house and this recipe won’t disappoint. If you want to make this really easy to make try using a bag of frozen bell peppers or the chopped garlic you buy in a jar or dried onions, all instead of fresh. All of these options are still clean eating. You may want to try those options only some of the time and use fresh when you have more time to make dinner.
