If you are looking to make this recipe a little more healthy, you could also replace the ground beef with ground turkey or ground chicken. We prefer the flavor of the ground beef, but either alternative would be delicious as well.
You could also do a meatless chili if you are wanting to serve this as an appetizer or side.
