Default Chili, medium carb


I noted the brands I used here, but you can use any that don't have added sugar. The black soybeans are key here, though, because they are VERY low carb due to their high fibre content. I found them at my local health food store. We had a roast that was not very tender, so I cubed it and simmered it in the beef broth for an hour or two, then added the other ingredients to make the chili, and the meat was very tender. Worked out nice.

8 oz lean beef cooked, cubed
3 oz pork loin cutlet, cooked, cubed (because I had it to use up)
17 oz Primo Red Kidney beans
11 oz Eden black soybeans
14.5 oz Price Chopper diced tomatoes/chilies
2 cups Aylmer diced tomatoes
3 tbsp unico tomato paste
1/2 cup Compliments Beef broth
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp chopped basil
1.5 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
