I love this chili! I did change some things. I bought Morningstar Recipe Crumbles to use instead of the 2lbs of ground beef (I'm a vegetarian) and it was delicious. I used two bags. Also, I left out the bay leaves and green pepper which I think improved the taste (personal opinion of course!) It's hard being a low-carb vegetarian so I'm crazy about this recipe. Thanks!
in the interest of being fair I'm giving this a med score, I haven't made it yet but for all those who are missing the beans in your low carb chili, you can go to a health food store near you and pick up some black soy beans, they are low carb and high in fiber. I will be trying out this recipe in a day or two and I will be adding some in mine, like you, its just not chili without the beans
I made this for my boyfriend (omitted the cinnamon), and I guess it's OK if you're on a strict low-carb diet, but it really seemed like meat sauce for pasta instead of chili. He didn't eat the leftovers. I wouldn't recommend it or make it again.
Really, really good! I did not add the mushrooms or green peppers. I used ground turkey and just a couple of dashes of cinnamon. Sorry, I did not serve this as low carb, I put rice on the bottom of the bowl and garnished it with cheese and green onions. This is my new chili recipe. PERFECT!
Wow! I tried it and I like it and so did my husband who is the real low carb dieter. He is diabetic. I used the extra lean ground sirloin,added 2ozs jalepeno's diced, 1/4 C. Merlot,omited the mushrooms and Yummy! It's all gone.....lol! It's a keeper and Thank You very much! We will enjoy it on a reg. basis.
Loved this, made me forget I was on low carb diet. Almost.
Yum I love it! I added a cup of lentils to make it more hearty and increase the protein. Didn't add mushrooms. Thanks!
pretty delicious. I added some steak and corn. not much more in the way of carbs.
Man this chili is amazing! Only add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. The cinnamon was a little over powering.
This was okay, but much like Greek style, or Cincinnati style, which I like, but not what I think of 'normal' chili; too many spices.
