Batch cooking tip or Alternate Cooking Method Option:
  1. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can cook this in a medium pot. On Step 3, bring the chili to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer for approximately 20 minutes for SP, or 30 minutes if using cauliflower for AP.
Recipe Notes

If you like a spicier chili, add more cayenne pepper at the end of cooking for more heat. For you brave souls (not me). If you can’t find a suitable fat free beef stock, you can sub water. The beef broth just helps add additional flavor. Make a double batch and divide into four freezer bags for individual portions to last the entire week. You can also make this recipe with ground skinless chicken breast. For AP variations, try this chili with ground bison or ground turkey. To make it even more filling with more volume, add miracle rice (just those zero calorie miracle noodles cut into a “rice” shape). If you’re not sure what this is or if it’s okay, I have a detailed post on this: 10 things to know about Miracle Noodles on the hCG Diet. This is AP also obviously. But remember, they have NO calories. Macros in the box are for SP version (calories are for use of 95% fat free beef), but AP macros are written below as well. You may have room to add more calories to this meal – if so, my suggestion is to use additional canned tomatoes (and remember, go for the fire roasted!) There’s 50 calories in 1 cup of the canned tomatoes. So if you add 1/2 cup to each serving, that makes the SP version of the recipe 208 calories.
