Cook time: 25 min
Price: $1.97
Weight: 11.5 oz.
Serves: 4
Calories: 427*
Fat: 18g

Protein: 23 g

1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 14.5-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 16-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 4.5-ounce can chicken
2 tablespoons roasted peanuts

At Home
Make stock by sautéing onion and garlic in oil until soft, about five minutes. Add canned tomatoes, tomato paste, peanut butter, and salt. Simmer for 20 minutes (stir constantly to prevent burning), then cool and store in an airtight container for up to two days (keep cold). Combine kidney beans and chopped bell pepper in a separate zip-top bag.

In Camp
Pour stock into a pot and add 1.5 cups of water. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and add the kidney beans, chopped pepper, and chicken. Cover the pot and simmer for 10 minutes, or until hot. Divide chili into bowls and top each serving with peanuts.

The North Face Clearance
Dec 15, 2012

I bought <a href="">North Face Clearance</a> for my boyfriend for Christmas in 2010. A year later he still loves the <a href="">The North Face Clearance</a> and wears it on a daily basis. The quality is great and it has not worn whatsoever. It keeps him warm during all outdoor activities from running errands to hiking! Would buy again!

We made this chili and put a slice of homage bread with it and it tasted better than any chili I could make at home. Full of flavor and protein! Keep these good recipes coming!

We made this on a backpacking trip with a bunch of Boy Scouts. It came out great and event he boys liked it enough to skip the freeze dried meals they had packed.
