Happy New Year's Everyone. I'm off to a late start for this New Year. What was on your list of TO-DO's this year? Mine as usual, is to eat healthier! I'll be starting with a skinny, very low fat version of my Texas Chili. This is for one of my followers that really loves chili and recently had a heart attack. She had requested some of the Morton's Chili Blend that I use in my chili. She use to be able to get it online and can no longer access the Morton's. Before I could send her some, I was informed by her daughter that she had a heart attack and could no longer eat her beloved chili! Well, I thought why not? The only fat in chili comes from the meat, not the seasoning or the tomatoes or the beef broth (low sodium) of course. So I made this chili last night. Can you tell what kind of meat I used? I surely can not taste any difference. My meat only had 1 gram of fat and after it was browned, I drained the meat and then rinsed it off thoroughly with HOT water, returned it to a cleaned pot and continued on with the process. This is for you Mary C.!
You can have your beloved chili and still eat a low fat diet!
