Soups & Stews

Turkey, Three-Bean Chili

There’s nothing that warms better from the inside out on the first bitter night of the season than a piping bowl of homemade chili. This version is full of fiber and lean protein, leaving you feeling satisfied without all the saturated fat of regular chili recipes. Serve with a sprinkle of reduced-fat cheddar cheese, diced scallions, and a slice of cornbread (I recommend adding some mild green chiles to the batter for a little kick) on the side – or crumbled on top.

 

Fondue au Fromage

Fondue is the perfect dish for a romantic evening with that special someone or to share among friends, especially if you carry on the tradition: “If a man loses his bread in the pot, he buys drinks all around, and if a woman does, she must kiss her neighbors.” After a trip to St. Killian’s Cheese Shop in Denver’s Highland Square, I came home with three cheeses: classic Gruyère, Scharfe Maxx, and Comte. Now I don’t know if I can ever return to “traditional” again. Serve with slices of French baguette and Honeycrisp apples.
