DAD’S (LIGHTER) CHILI 👨🏻🥣



👏🏼 A big thanks to all those that voted in this week’s recipe poll on Instagram!


🏆 My dad’s chili is FAMOUS among our family and friends - it’s the best, hands down 😍 Luckily for me, when I was craving it he typed up his ~secret~ 🤫 recipe and sent it over - the subject of the email he sent was: This is the HAPPY version, not the HEALTHY version 😂😂 He has clearly caught on to my catch phrase (which I unintentionally say all the time) “we have to balance the happy with he healthy!” 💁🏼‍♀️


Since I was making it for meal prep (and mostly since his version is the most special when he makes it) I made the HEALTHY (and still happy) version 😉 and don’t worry, even though it’s the healthy version it DEFINITELY didn’t sacrifice any flavor 😋
