Bethenny Frankel’s Ultra-Healthy Mexican Chili

Tiny Prints Holiday Card Collection


If you’re close with me, you know I’ve become obsessed with Bethenny Frankel.  It’s not because of “The Real Housewives” though. It’s because of her book A Place of Yes. So half way through that book, I ordered her book Naturally Thin. So many wonderful recipes included with such fantastic advice about food. I know you’ll enjoy this chili recipe (I added a few ingredients and turned it into a slow cooker recipe to suit my day!) p.s. I heard about Bethenny from Trina 😉 So we’re in this together!!
