I tried this recipe tonight and it was great. I served it over a few teaspoons of white rice. My son who is a body builder asked I would make a whole pot of it and I said no - I might make it again next week. :)

While the recipe sounds really good I haven't tried it yet. Im worried about the sodium content. Dont canned vegetables have a lot of sodium? I would think canned tomatoes would have too much sodium for a kidney diet. Please clarify. Dietitian comment: You can substitute unsalted canned tomatoes and sodium will be even lower than 214 mg per serving. This amount is acceptable if you are following a 1500 to 2000 mg sodium diet (400-600 mg sodium per meal).

This chili is incredibly tasty. I just made it for the first time and it was just great. I feel a lot better about revising my diet now if recipes like this taste so good.

My husband has diabetes and I have CKD so this is a great recipe that I make all the time. We only like zuchinni in cake so I shred it in a food processor and it makes the chili nice and thick! This is pretty yummy for not having beans!

I would not make this due to the inclusion of so much tomato. Why do you include recipes like this? So frustrating to stay within limits of a kidney friendly diet. Dietitian comment: The potassium prescription for kidney diets varies from 2000 to 4000 mg depending on lab results and frequency of dialysis. You could reduce the tomatoes to 1/2 cup to reduce potassium by 90 mg per serving.

New too this site. Isn't the Potassium 517 mg little too high for this. My mother needs watch that. I thought they can't have sauce. Dietitian comment: Most dialysis patients are allowed at least 2,000 mg potassium a day, about 700 mg per meal. You can add a low potassium beverage and crackers or dessert and still stay within this range. Try using DaVita Diet Helper to create a meal around this recipe and save it to track your mother's intake for the day. This will show you how close she's coming to her daily targets.

I've been told that I should avoid tomatoes as CKD3 patient. Yet here are 14 oz. I'd love to try it, but is it OK? Dietitian comment: In stage 3 CKD you should only restrict high potassium foods if you have issues with high potassium levels. Getting adequate potassium may help with BP control and including those foods provides additional nutrients to your diet. Consult with your physician to determine if you require a low potassium diet.

New to this and don't understand the designations at bottom of recipes; e.g, 2 meat, 2 veg, etc. Made this last eve and family liked it! Used suggestions from comments for substituting ingredients. Dietitian comment: The Food Choices are used with a meal planning system called The National Renal Diet. You can find this guide at www.eatright.org.

I am new to this, but I thought that zucchini was one of the few low potassium veges. It sounds from reading the comments that it's not??? Dietitian comment: 1/2 cup of raw sliced zucchini contains 170 mg potassium, considered low enough for a low [potassium kidney diet. As suggested in the helpful hints, count one serving as 2 vegetable portions since the recipe also contains tomatoes.

Sure would have liked to know the sodium content in a one cup serving of this. Dietitian comment: 285 mg

Though this is not what I consider chili, it still rates high with me!

This was very good, except way too spicy.2 tsps.chili power and 1 1/2 tsps cumin? way too much...next time I will use only 1/2 tsp.cumin.

Very good! I had to eliminate the zucchini due to the potassium levels. I used frozen carrots instead. I also used unsalted tomatoes since my husband is on a strict low-sodium diet.

This was a bust--zucchini does not belong in chili to start with. The same with stewed tomatoes. While I,realize chili powder should be used sparingly, with beef based chili, I,use two tab Espoons per pound of meat. So woul recommend an increase in chili powder, use crushed tomatoes with sauce and eliminate the zucchini.

I love this chili so very good. The second time I made it I used red roasted peppers instead of tomatoes

I really enjoyed this recipe. I took it to our chili night at church because I knew the others would be eat up with sodium. I was the only one with no leftovers.

Where are the low potassium recipes? I am constrained to 920 milligrams a day Moderator comment: Our low potassium diet goal is 2000 mg potassium a day, following the NKF/KDOQI clinical practice guidelines for nutrition in chronic kidney disease. We suggest you work with your dietitian for your individualized needs.

As I was observing the recipe, I observed that this recipe best suits a person that lacks potassium.

Yay, a dialysis recipe that has 14 ounces of tomato. I realize not all patients have to deal with potassium & phosphorus, but most do. Aside from the enormous dietary failure, this recipe actually looks like it would taste great.

Ok, I'm going to try this recipe but going to substitute zucchini with red/yellow or red bellpeppers to bring potassium and phosphorus way down. Going to try this tonight. Hopefully my daughter will not yell at me for cooking my dinner. she usally does. Will write more tomorrow to let you know.
