The chili looks very good. I enjoy trying new chili recipes. I go back and forth between beans/no beans both specifically in chili and in general with low carb. It depends on the day if I add them or not. Keep talking about portion control. It is key to success.

             Thanks Karen. This chili is one of my husband's favorites. I think it is one of the chili recipes that does need the beans. It is amazing how many people simply don't understand what even a normal portion looks like...and seeing a "small" portion, which is what my own body an amazement for them.

Really great recipe. Will make this soon. As you mentioned, it does need the beans. I'll just reduce the amount a little. Thanks Phyllis

             Thanks Rina-Marie. The 22 carbs is the onions, tomatoes and beans. But one 14 oz can of kidney beans split 6 ways isn't a whole lot of beans.

Hi Phyllis, I made this great recipe today. I didn't have beef mince, so used venison 98% fat free. Also didn't have the chili mix you used, so added my own - dried hot chili flakes, dried mixed herbs, 1/4 tsp of cumin and paprika. After I browned my mince (500g = 1.1lb) I found that it reduced to 365g, still logged 500g. I also weighed my final recipe and divided that by 6 and 4. 6 servings: 179g - 171cal, 15g carb, 24.9g protein. 4 servings: 256cal - 22.5g carbs, 37.4g protein. 1/6 of the recipe seemed too small a portion for a main meal, so I divided mine by 4. The venison I use is very high protein and iron, very low in fat, hence the high protein grams. Really delicious. Thanks Phyllis for a great recipe and fabulous website.

             Thanks, Rina-Marie, It is really interesting to see the way you adapt things in Australia. I'm glad you found the video helpful, and I look forward to your future comments here at DietHobby.
