Healthy Recipe- Chili

I know that real chili doesn't have beans. Or is it meat? Anyway, this isn't real chili, but it is good. And it's not only healthy (with good carbs from the beans), it has low enough calories and carbs that you can serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich (using lite bread, and butter spray) and/or a good green salad.
You can also substitute cooked chicken for the hamburger.

Chili (serves 4 or 6, depending on the size of the serving)

1lb 94% fat free hamburger, browned
1 small can Spicy Hot V-8 juice
1 can diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers
2 cans spicy chili beans
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste

Brown the hamburger in a large pot, drain if necessary. Add remaining ingredients, spice to taste, heat through and serve.
