Chili is one of our favorites for weekend football nights!  Being on the Nutrisystem plan didn’t stop me from enjoying a delicious chili dinner with the rest of the family.  This is how I do it.  If you’re looking for a way to make a quick and easy meal, this is also an easy way to use simple add-ins and turn canned chili into a fresh, delicious meal.


  • 1 can of prepared Chili with Beans
  • 1 cup of Diced Tomatoes with Green Peppers and Onions
  • 1/4 cup of Diced fresh Green Pepper
  • Diced, Raw Onions to taste

Stir together the Chili and Tomatoes in a microwave safe bowl.

Cook on high power for one minute.  Make sure to cover loosely with a paper towel, tomato sauce tends to “pop”.

Garnish with peppers and onions.

The Nutrisystem plan suggests this combination for your dinner meal:  Your Nutrisystem Dinner Entree, 2 Vegetable Servings, 1 Fruit or Vegetable and 1 Fat.  The tomatoes, green pepper and onion count as 2 1/2 Vegetable servings.  I usually serve a salad and low fat dressing (counts as my fat) with the chili for a filling and healthy meal!

On to dessert!  Again, this is my Nutrisystem food, but if you are not on Nutrisystem you can substitute something comparable from your grocery store.  I saved a bit of fruit and yogurt from my afternoon snack to add to my Nutrisystem pound cake and, voila!


  • small serving of Pound Cake
  • 16 blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons of light blueberry yogurt
