Ancho Beef and Bulgur Chili

Ancho Beef and Bulgur Chili

Ancho Beef and Bulgur Chili

While chili purists might argue the virtues of a beanless bowl, the fiber in beans keeps you feeling satisfied and may also help regulate blood pressure and boost heart health. To ramp up the fiber even more, add bulgur, a type of cracked wheat that's a ground beef lookalike and adds even more meaty texture.
