If I need a fast dinner to make for my children I make them chicken drumsticks. The easiest way to prepare them—and more preferred by my children—is with salt, garlic, and onion powder only. However, if your family is a bit more adventurous try them with the sauce that I've included. Either way you will feel good about feeding your family a healthy dinner that took you no time at all.
I had planned on making chili when I started making this recipe but ended up serving it on mini buns, turning it into sloppy joes. So, whether you eat this recipe as chili on rice or as a sloppy joe on a bun, or on top of spaghetti squash it is delicious and healthy either way!
In a nonstick pan sprayed with cooking spray heat oil over medium heat, cook onions for 5 minutes or until soft. Stir in garlic and peppers, cook another five minutes. Add beef, cook for 5 minutes or just until beef is cooked and no longer pink.
Add in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered for 30 minutes.
Serve over brown rice, pasta, on top of multigrain mini buns or whatever you like. I ate leftovers on top of spaghetti squash and it was delicious.
