This freezes well. I like to freeze in 1-cup Gladware or Ziplock ware containers.

The Chili Beans I use have no sugar grams in them and they are just pinto beans in a tomato base sauce w/some green chilis.

WW friendly too : On Winning Points is comes to 3.1777 points and on 1-2-3 Success or The 10% Difference it comes to 2.7576 points.

Kel, this looks fine...most all the ingredients are Phase 1-- considering that the 1 TSP of sugar is in 2 lbs of meat.. I think the amount you'll ingest per serving is pretty minimal (or you could substitute Splenda for the sugar)..

Tell DH Bon Apetite! :chef:

Not sure how concerned you are about water retention. I usually hang on to some water weight after chili or high sodium foods. If you feel that the sodium is a little up there try using No Salt added tomatoes. They are usually right beside the regular ones. hope this helped :hug:

Neither him or I have problem with retention from sodium. I can eat Chinese before weighing in and not show a water retention problem.

Oh LOL I guess I forgot that I don't use sugar (the real stuff much anymore) I substitute that with Splenda.

BTW DH does SBD and I do W/W. :)

P.S. Kel, if you figure out the number of servings, I could add (or you could) this to the recipe section for SBD...We're always looking for new good dishes--and with winter around the corner -nuthin's better than a hearty new chili to try! :hungry: :)

Than you Ruth. I have some other W/W Core recipes that we use that I feel are good for SBD to (Since both programs are very, very much alike). If you would like I'd be happy to share them. :)

BTW I have incorporated some of the SBD ideas/rules/guidelines into my W/W Core program and it works great! :)
