Sriracha Tuna Chili

6 Bowls380 cals

Do you love chili but hate how long it takes? Are you looking for a quick and high protein meal prep? Try this Sriracha Tuna Chili! This healthy recipe takes just a few minutes to prep, is cheap to make, and packed with just enough kick!

The first thing you need to do for the recipe is to get your ingredients ready. To do this you’re going to need 2 bowls.

Add into your first bowl 1 can of drained & rinsed dark red kidney beans and 1 can of drained & rinsed black beans. Put those off to the side.

In your other bowl add 6 cans of drained tuna and put that bowl off the side.

What size cans am I using? I always put the totals of each ingredient in the recipe card below!

Take out a large stovetop pan or pot, turn your burner on medium heat, and add 2 tablespoons of canola oil into it.

Once it heats up add in 2 bags of frozen stir fry vegetables. If you don’t like frozen vegetables you can chop up some green bell peppers, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, and white onion.

You can also change the flavor(s) of this recipe up by using other vegetables, spices, herbs, and so on. Think outside the box and don’t be scared to try new things! Let us know your favorite things to add into this Sriracha tuna chili in the comments below.

Tuna Chili Ingredients

Mix your vegetables up a bit then add in 1 large can of crushed tomatoes, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 10 teaspoons of chili sauce, 1 packet of a low sodium chili seasoning mix, your beans that you put off to the side, 10 tablespoons of your choice salsa, and your tuna.

Keep your ingredients moving as you add them in so that nothing burns.

Mix everything for your Sriracha tuna chili up good and let it cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes. You’ll want to occasionally stir it as it cooks.

Remove your Sriracha tuna chili from the heat, portion it out, and top it with some reduced fat or fat free cheese!

    I’ve been following you on Instagram for a while now, but am SOOOOOO happy that I checked out your website and YouTube channel. I’ve been focusing on my weight loss journey for about 2 years now and have had coaches that gave me meal plans that I just hated. I’ve now been with a fantastic coach for the past year and we do macros. Your recipes are amazing because they can fit in my macros and are absolutely DELICIOUS!!!!!

    I’m going to be entering my first bikini competition this summer and I’m so happy I have your guidance and recipes to keep me motivated and happy 🙂 🙂

    Thanks Again!

      That’s awesome Jermaine! Keep it up and definitely let me know how you do in your first bikini competition, I’m sure you’ll kill it (while eating great tasting food)!

        Greetings from Sweden.

        Great site and very good recipes. What do you think about eating this cold. It is not always that I can warm food at my job.

        Hi Anders! I would think it’s fine cold. Hope this helps!
