Liked this alot there are enough flavors that I used a fourth of a tsp of salt and it was fine. I wonder about adding black beans to this. Studies show that only a portion of the phosphate in beans are absorbed and the other health benefits to beans are good. What do you think? Dietitian comment: You could decrease the ground meat by 1/2 pound and add a cup of black beans. This substitution will keep the potassium and phosphorus around the same levels.

Could this be used for phase 3 if it was made with just turkey? Also heard seeds were not good for us. Should we use cumin powder instead of cumin seeds? Sounds so so good. Wish it was made...I am hungry. Dietitian comment: Both cumin powder and seeds are acceptable. If you omit the beef the protein, potassium and phosphorus will be lower (if you stick to the serving size suggested.)

Good recipe. Could one add corn maybe 2 cups? Dietitian comment: If you add 2 cups of low sodium canned corn the potassium increases to 655 mg and phosphorus increases to 307 mg per serving.

This was a really good recipe. About halfway through cooking, I tasted it and decided it needed something to balance the flavors a little. I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and about 1/2 Tbsp of brown sugar and felt like this helped to mellow it a little. Next time I'd increase the peppers and onions to make up for the lack of beans. Overall, I was impressed that this was actually kidney friendly and would definitely make it again. The portion size would have been a little small, but served over white rice, it was perfect.

I made this exactly as the recipe stated, and it was really delicious! Could have eaten it as is, but we put it over elbow macaroni. I thought I would miss the beans, but really didn't. Highly recommend this chili.
