Learn how to make Bethenny's famous chili recipe!

Snow Day Chili Recipe


1/2 medium-sized onion, chopped
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 red pepper, chopped
1/4 yellow pepper, chopped
1 small can pureed tomatoes
1/2 zucchini, chopped
1/4 pound ground turkey breast (omit if vegetarian)
1/4 cup canned red pinto beans


Sauté onions over medium/high heat in nonstick pan with nonstick spray and add chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper, minced garlic, red pepper, yellow pepper (one color is fine).

When vegetables are soft, add pureed tomatoes (can says tomato sauce, but the only ingredients are unseasoned, pureed tomatoes).

Add zucchini.

When vegetables are cooked, add either ground turkey breast and red pinto beans.  For vegetarian version, skip the turkey.  It is even delicious without the red beans!

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Hey Bethenny,
I have been studying nutrition now and was curious I know you have too and I know you try and do a lot of low fat and make over recipes. My question is do you when it comes to kale, spinach and the brassica family like broccoli and cabbage and a lot of green foods even other veggies are fat soluble foods not water soluble so I am learning it is best to eat them with full fat like olive oil real not low fat or butter or something fattening so you absorb the nutrients. Have you heard about this the chemical/biological part and do you try and do this with just a small amount of real fat? Just would love your opinion since I love all your books and advice.
