Building a Healthy Plate with Beef

When it comes to choosing healthy proteins, lean beef is a delicious, healthy choice that is a perfect partner for fruits, vegetables and whole grains, making it even easier to enjoy a balanced diet. The Beef Checkoff has an Interactive Beef Counter feature on their website, which helps guide you to find the right cut of beef. I find this to be such a useful tool in helping to select lean cuts of beef.

  1. I always forget about using black beans in chili until I get reminded by wonderful looking recipes like this. Nice to see chunks of beef too instead of ground beef.

  2. My husband always makes fun of me when I make Chili because I never make the same one twice. I can’t wait to try your version!

  3. I’ve never really liked kidney beans and only recently started replacing them with black beans in my chili! SO much better. I’d love a big bowl of yours!!

  4. We love chili for #SundaySupper! You can bet this is the next one we make!
