Helpful hints

  • Pumpkin replaces tomatoes and tomato sauce in this recipe. Follow the recommended portion size to keep potassium within an acceptable range for a low potassium kidney diet.
  • Beans are high in potassium and phosphorus. Limit recipe to 1 cup. Optionally, you can omit the beans to further reduce potassium and phosphorus.
  • Serve chili over rice or with low-sodium crackers. If desired top with chopped chives or cilantro and a spoonful of sour cream or Greek yogurt.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet make the recipe with 1 pound of ground turkey and reduce to 8 portions. Protein is 17 mg per cup.
