For 5 grams of fat and 235 calories per serving, substitute ground turkey breast for the ground beef and use Bisquick Heart Smart® mix.

Serve with a mixed-greens salad, red and green grapes and, for dessert, brownies.

Accompany with diced tomatoes, sour cream, chopped cilantro, tortilla chips, and shredded lettuce for an all-out chili buffet!

You’ll get even more chili flavor if you use a 14 1/2-ounce can chili-ready tomatoes in place of the whole tomatoes.
