I can and do eat chili year round … but had not made it recently…. that all changed this morning.
In my opinion, low carb “primal” chili is a great food for diabetics… and it is what I call a “3-2″ pitch in my personal diabetic diet. Truly, it’s a great food for EVERYONE!
Why? … check my recipe… only 4.5 grams of carbs per cup and packed full of flavor. You can add and subtract ingredients of course…but just make sure to COUNT YOUR CARBS!! :)
Check this link for my full recipe and cooking instructions, CLICK HERE. … I make it differently each time I make it. Not only do I add different spices but here’s a cooking tip… changing the “coarseness” of the ingredients makes a difference too… in my opinion. Today’s batch was processed in a food processor…. for a nice smooth texture. Other times, I will chop and dice with a knife.
Lastly, I cook and eat chili with many different foods…it’s great with Eggs, fish, steak, bacon, ham… it’s a perfect “side dish” for ANY MEAT!
I’ll shut up now and start showing you pictures. :)
First up is the ingredients and carb values. ENJOY!
As you can see… 4.4 g per cup, which is low by itself, but add this with your favorite meat …and it really cranks the carbs down “per mouthful”. :)
Below…is a picture of the ingredients… note the spices used. I often use Coriander, Tarragon, Basil, Oregano, Paprika, … but CUMIN and GARLIC are required when I make it. No “if and or butts” about it. :))
The next picture is of the onion, celery and green peppers after they have been processed. Note: You can chop or cut these up to change the texture and I believe the taste of the chili. For carbs… it doesn’t get much prettier than this….to me. :)
And NOW for the final product… just plain old… Steve’s World Famous Low Carb Primal Chili!!!! :) Hmmmm Goood!!!
Remember! YOU can make huge batches of chili…freeze them in individual containers and add to your standard meal to really “spice” things up a bit. :)
Hope you ENJOY!
