Firehouse Chili http://www.davita.com/recipes/soups and stews/firehouse-chili/a/5554

Our Firehouse Chili recipe was submitted by DaVita renal dietitian Shelli from Michigan. As the name implies, it’s hot and spicy, thanks to onion, chili powder, cumin, garlic and Mexican-style stewed tomatoes with jalapeno peppers and spices. Ground beef and spiral macaroni round out this dish, which is packed with stick-to-your-ribs goodness. To complete your meal, you may want to include low-sodium crackers, a roll or slice of bread. Our kidney-friendly Firehouse Chili fits into dialysis and diabetic eating plans but do watch portion size so as not to exceed recommended potassium levels.
