80--- Pizza Chili

Here in the chilly Montana winter, soup season seems like it may be here to stay for a while. This quick, high protein chili is a popular one with my family! It makes a great base to add in more vegetables as well. Consider using zucchini, fresh tomatoes, or spinach in addition to the recipe. 

Pizza Chili

Serves 8

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 lb lean ground turkey, wild game, or bison

1 lb Italian seasoned ground turkey or chicken sausage

40 oz marinara sauce of your choice (preferably without added sugar)

1 can Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes

1 can white beans, drained and rinsed

2 cups chicken bone broth

2 cubes frozen minced garlic (or 2 cloves fresh chopped)

8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced

3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp dried basil

1 Tbsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Fresh chopped basil, for garnish

Shredded parmesan cheese, for garnish

In a soup pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and pepper, and sauté until fragrant, 3-4 minutes.  Add ground meat and sausage and brown until cooked through.  Add marinara sauce, diced tomatoes, white beans, bone broth, garlic, mushrooms, vinegar, and seasonings.  Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook through, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes.  Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh chopped basil and shredded parmesan, if desired.
