Creamy Cauliflower Chili

Chili can be so versatile. There are so many different things you can add into it to make it high in protein and overall a yummy, healthy chili recipe, the creamy cauliflower chili is the perfect example.

It sounds weird, I know, but this recipe is amazing!

As a nacho lover I am automatically a chili lover..duh! This chili turns a classic turkey chili into a creamy, veggie filled, VOLUMINOUS healthy bowl of chili. Although it is February and we are seeing an early spring according to Puxatony Phil… I am still in the mood for warm foods I don’t know about you! You will be amazed how many vegetables you can add to a dish and still have it turn out AMAZING. Yes, I am looking at all of you people who fear veggies, they are our friends.. Promise…Veggie Tales forever.

I love creamy dishes, but if you do not, then take a look at my Spicy Turkey Stew, it is very similar to this recipe but no creaminess and no beans!

What I like to do with my chili is top it with some melty cheese, and make my own tortilla chips in the air fryer to dip.

Here Is How You Make The Chips:
What You Will Need:
  1. Cut up your tortillas with the shears into any shape you want, squares or triangles usually work the best.
  2. Line your air fryer with foil and lay out the chips.
  3. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Set your air fryer to 370 degrees and let cook for 8-9 minutes or until brown and crispy.
  5. Dip and ENJOY!
  6. They are mini chips but they are super great! (If you want larger chips just use more tortillas and cut them larger)
