Meat lovers chili

January 27, 2017

Who here makes a chili for Superbowl?? It’s just kind of a tradition isn’t it? I love a good chili but unfortunately I just don’t care for beans, I will eat baked beans once in a blue moon but my ideal chili is bean free.. so I made one.. and I promise in this delicious meat lovers chili you won’t miss the beans! Serve this up at the big game and it is sure to be gobbled up.. makes 9, 1.5 cup servings at only 5 smart points per serving.

      It is a Canadian bacon, google “Canadian back bacon” I think you can buy something similar in the U.S if that is where you are..
