“The barley adds a nice touch to this chili and allows you to stretch your beef farther. It absorbs flavours and adds a nutty chewiness while adding fibre. Try to use products with low or no salt. This healthy recipe is from Alberta Health Services. Enjoy!”

  1. In a large pot, cook the beef and onion in a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes, breaking up with a spoon, until the onions are soft and the meat is no longer pink. Add the peppers and garlic and cook for a few more minutes, until soft.
  2. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low, cover and cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally, until reduced and thick.
  3. Serve immediately or cool, then refrigerate for a day or two until ready to enjoy.
