Low Carb Chili Recipe
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup finely chopped garlic
1/4 cup chopped green chili peppers
5 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne
1 packet Splenda
Brown the ground beef with the onions and garlic. Mix in the chili peppers. Make a sauce from the tomato paste, cocoa powder, chili powder, cumin, cayenne and Splenda. Mix this in. Cook 15 minutes, more if possible to mature the flavors.
Carbs per serving: 4g
Note that onion is high carb (7.5g/.5 cup) so you can drop that quantity down if you want. Other things to include if you wish are:
2 plum tomatoes, chopped up (4g)
1/2 cup mushrooms (1g)
1/2 cup zucchini (3.3g)
1 Tbsp red wine (adds flavor)
You can enjoy the chili plain, or sprinkle grated cheese over it, or put a dollop of sour cream on top of it. It's also good rolled up like a burrito in a low carb tortilla! Mix and match, and see which combinations you enjoy the most.
