Recipe – Chili Con Carne

Posted on Nov 19, 2012 | 0 comments

Chili is such a wonderful food to fill you up.  Add a few unsalted crackers to this and you have a great meal.  You can make this and freeze it for use later – put one cup in a baggie and freeze lying flat, then when you are ready to eat it, pull it out and put it into a microwave safe bowl and cook.  It’s great for renal diets because there are no beans, so you have a lower phosphorus level.  Let me know what you think!
