I found this on a low carb website and it is very good. Sometimes I use the cinnamon, other times I don't. It tastes good even if you aren't a 'low carber'. The picture was taken using 2 lbs of beef stewing meat! Thanks for the comments to use 2 lbs, it's much better!

The spices are spot on! Don't change them until you've at least tried them as listed in the ingredients. I used garlic powder instead of fresh cloves. I also added a can of Rotel tomatoes for more flavor and bulk. I used over 8 ounces of fresh mushrooms which I roughly chopped. They seem to melt away, yet they added to the over all richness of the chili. I simmered the chili for just two hours and that seemed more than adequate.<br/><br/>10/08/13 UPDATE: There's a YouTube demo of this recipe being prepared. The chili came out great. Here's the link:

Loved this, cant wait to finish it tomorrow! I halved the recipe and used 2 garlic cloves, omitted the chili powder, red pepper and allspice (didn't have any of this) - I also used extra onions. Thought it was runny and not very flavorful...UNTIL...I took the lid of the pot and it simmered nearly 2.5 hours...was thicker, and so much flavor! had alot of heat without the items I omitted, so glad I did. I actually used ground turkey. very yummy. Made 4 cups at. each 2 cup serving was about 336 calories and 6 carbs...sweet!!!!! (2 cups and a moch cornbread muffin filled me up!!!) thanks...great chili..

I did not let it set for 3 hours! I like the spices mix! To lower the calories I added in more water and a pound of meat instead of 2 pounds. My calorie count for lean meat and all the other ingredients was 245 for 2 and 1/4 cups pers person, 5 of us! Thanks for SHARING!
