Description: A decidedly Cubano twist on chili!
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons olive oil
4 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound ground chuck
1 pound ground pork
1 14 oz can beef broth
1 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon brown sugar substitute (I use whey low gold)
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cup manzilla pimento stuffed olives (0 carb)
How To Prepare: Heat the oil in a large heavy fry pan. Stir in the onion and garlic and cook until soft. Add the ground chuck and pork and cook until browned. Drain off the excess fat.


Drain the can of tomatoes. Add tomatoes and beef broth, squashing the tomatoes with your hands as you add them. Then stir in the vinegar, sugar, salt & spices. Bring it all to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer partly covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook for 30 more minutes.


Slice the olives in half. Add to the mixture and cook an additional 5 minutes.


(Sometimes I will add a can or 2 of drained black soy beans during the last 30 minutes of cooking).


Serve in bowls.
Number of Servings: 6

Using http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp I figured it to be 6g net carbs/serving. The whole recipe has 37g net carbs. Haven't tried it yet but plan on making it tomorrow for a pot luck.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): very filling and tasty! Love the different flavors.
Cons: very salty.

I will leave out the salt and olives next time. Also, found out the hard way that white chili powder is not the same as regular red. It was so terribly spicy I had to ditch the first batch. Second batch made correctly and was yummy but very salty.
