Barack Obama's Chili Recipe
Health Highlights


1 can(s) (15 oz) Red kidney beans, canned, drained (not drained)
454 gm Chicken, ground, lean
1 medium pepper(s) Green bell pepper (chopped)
1 onion(s) Sweet onion (chopped)
5 large Tomato (chopped)
4 clove(s) Garlic (chopped)
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Oregano, fresh
1 tsp Basil, fresh
1 tsp Turmeric, powder
2 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Salt
3 tbsp Red wine vinegar


I used a 6 quart Smart Pot for Obama's chili.

Chop up the tomatoes, garlic, onion, and bell pepper. Add to the crockpot. Open the can of beans, and pour in the whole thing. Add the ground meat. Stir in all of the spices and the red wine vinegar.

Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours, or on high for 4-5. I cooked our chili on low for 9 hours.

Season with a bit more salt, to taste.

Obama serves his chili over rice, so we did too. The kids really liked that a lot—-they love white rice.
