I noticed that Hormel makes a turkey-based chili with beans and vegetarian chili with beans that are both 98% fat free?

Could these be legal in Phase 1?

I'm missing my soup :(

What are the ingredients? The nutritional info is OK except for supplying 50% of the RDA for sodium.

Why not make your own? Check out our recipe section.

Rubberduck, they aren't legal in Phase 1, as far as I remember. I just looked at the turkey one last night and it has some ingredients in it that make me think it would only work in Phase 3. :shrug:

You can, however, make amazing chili at home! I absolutely ADORE the White Chicken Chili ( the recipe forum. There's also a complete section dedicated to Soups and Stews--Phase 1 ( Don't quote me on it, but I think you can also have Progresso's Lentil soup in Phase 1...but check the ingredients first, please, to make sure, okay? :goodvibes

I was just looking at soups in the commissary the other day, and granted we don't have *that* big of a selection, but I literally found NONE that were Phase 1 legal. They all had either potatoes or carrots. Even the vegetable BROTH and bullion cubes had sugar and carrots in them! (I didn't check the beef or chicken broth since I'm a vegetarian.) I did, however, just discover a new use for the water that bakes out of my eggplant dishes - I'm going to use it as homemade vegetable broth! Perfect!
