    Need a lower fat version of this recipe? Follow these tips to reduce the fat:

    After browning the meat remove from the pot and place in a fine meshed
    colander or strainer and rinse thoroughly with hot water then return to the
    pot. You could also substitute the beef with a low fat ground turkey. Also,
    use low fat or fat free cheddar, sour cream, corn chips, and chicken broth.

    Makes 6 to 8 servings.
