Chili recipes are ideal for the time-pressed cook because they are quick and easy to prepare. Ideal for when you've been working all day and want a tasty, wholesome meal on the table at the end of it. Ideal for families who want a healthy meal together but don't have much time to cook it. Chili is economical and you can make large quantities of your chosen recipe – simply freeze what you don't eat and reheat for another convenient meal.


And the nutrition benefits for you and your family from these recipes? The beans that make up the bulk of your chili dish are naturally low in fat, making them great for a healthy meal, and contain no cholesterol or saturated fat. Beans are packed with beneficial nutrients like fiber, calcium, iron, folic acid and protein. All these nutrients are essential to a healthy diet. In fact, beans have more fiber than most other whole grain foods and are a whole lot more appetizing than many of them. Beans are high in protein and rich in iron – great for vegetarians and people who don't like to eat red meat. Beans are also rich in magnesium and B vitamins. When you add in the nutrients from the vegetables you cook with the beans – and keep your meat lean – you've got one healthy supper.

When you really don't have enough time to cook, open a can of ready prepared chili beans in a spicy sauce and heat. All you need to add is some chunks of bread and a sprinkling of cheese and you've got a tasty supper or light dinner. Chili beans in a tomato sauce, whether it's zesty and spicy or warm and flavorsome, contain around 100 calories per serving. Not bad for a simple meal that's high in flavor.
