It works best with a gas stove top.  Set the pepper right on the burner, directly over a low flame.  Turn until it's evenly charred all over.  The charred skin peels right off.  Fast, quick, and yummy!

If you then stick the pepper in a ziploc bag for a couple minutes, it seems to be a little easier to peal.  You can usually pull it off with your fingers, or scrape with a knife edge.

I love chili.

And thus I need a good girlfriend who can cook and has great insurance.

Sounds good, but don't know if I can handle Tobasco sauce anymore. For some odd reason I have trouble eating that type of pepper thses days and will get sick to my stomach. I miss those foods.

I've used cinnamon before when cooking meat. Never had the smell though. In some marinates, cinnamon is an ingredient. Steak came out good, smelled great. Of course I was using Whiskey as a marinate base though  :shy;

made Zach's chili with a few modifications

no cinimmon and did not skin a bell pepper

my family loved it  ---- I think the bacon must have given it added Texas smoked flavor -- use smoked bacon not maple
my Aggie son wanted me to make more to freeze for him to eat at college so of course, I did
that is one of the only times I made chili without adding any kind of beans
no one noticed and it is good chili

it does sound good, but i think i would miss the beans. i make chili, but not often and say "to hell with it" and eat the beans. with that said, i do appreciate zach's taking the time to post the potassium, phosphors content.

I like to make up a big pot and freeze half for later.  Pre-dialysis, my usually recipe involved 3 or 4 cans of beans.  Now, I make the same size pot, and only add one can.  It still seems like normal chili, but there's just far fewer beans to mess up my renal diet.

I don't really like beans in chili but I have two quick questions... I put chicken stock and no sodium added tomatoes.  Is the chicken stock OK.  Also I like to eat chili over spagetti.  How would spagetti fit into this diet?  I really need to visit a dietician and find a better book than the one DaVita gave us.

But beans (I like pinto beans) -- Central Market has a can of about 1/3 regular sodium beans.  I rinse the goop off, cook a little brown rice and mix it all together with seasoning.  Again, I need to check on the beam and rice thing.

White rice is on the approved list.  The beans, maybe.  The problem with diet books and the dietitian's recommendations is that they like a "one-size-fits-all" approach.  They tend to hand you a list of stuff not to eat, and don't tailor the diet to your own personal restrictions.  If you keep track of your labs, you can see for yourself what things you need to restrict.  Personally, my potassium is usually low or normal, regardless of how much I eat of things that have high potassium, like tomatoes, potatoes and citrus fruit.  I still eat them in moderate quantities, just to keep from overloading, but I don't have to avoid anything in particular.  I have more issues with phosphorous.  I've had to cut back severely on dairy foods to keep my levels normal.  With the right phos binder, though, I can still have as much meat as I want, and I've been able to have small portions of beans on a pretty regular basis as well.  You're still pre-dialysis, dan, so hopefully, you still have a bit of leeway before you need to start making huge diet adjustments.  Get familiar with your lab values, and then start tweaking your diet to keep them in line.  Don't just start eliminating foods from your diet based on what the books say is good or bad for a dialysis patient.

Chicken stock is fine, just watch the sodium and MSG.

Add what ever you like. You can check their phosphorus & potassium levels at this site and add that amount to my nutritional totals:

Twirl,  Skyline Chile restaurants put cinnamon in their recipe.  Sometimes seasonings blend and add flavor but you can't taste the actual seasoning.    Give it a try  :2thumbsup;
