It’s recipe #2 for Chili Week! Yummmzies!!! This is another super quick weeknight meal idea. You can never have enough!

Here’s the deal with chili people. Beans are starchy. Protein, yes…but starchy. If you are a weight-conscious person, my recommendation is to go heavy on the meat, and light on the beans. Insert bad joke here. This recipe is adapted from the Kraft Foods website for just this reason. It calls for 2 cans of beans and 1 lb of chicken, but I swapped the ratio. Also, tabasco sauce is a great idea. If you like it hot, don’t be shy!

One more note for weight loss surgery patients- use a slotted spoon to scoop out your chili. It’s important to keep your foods very thick and not liquidy for a longer sense of satiety. More questions about this? Email me at Steph@foodcoach.me!
