Howdy, y’all! Since it’s so chilly this week I thought you might like to check out this recipe for chili. (I’m sorry I couldn’t help myself!) Anyway, I got this recipe off of my favorite low carb go-to website … http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/texas_chili.html . If you haven’t looked at this website then you really should!! I added a can of diced tomatoes, whole tomatoes and mushrooms which brought my net carbs to about 7-9 carbs per total. I also dressed it up a bit with some cheese and sour cream on top. As you can see from the pick mine was a little more watery than some might like. I added some ground flaxseed (0 carbs) to help thicken it up a bit. I ate on this for 4 nights. So yummy and filling!! I hope you enjoy it. =)
