Black Bean and Lentil Chili (Low Sodium, High Protein and Fiber)

Submitted by: S_LO_15

Introduction

I was trying to make chili with what I had in the fridge and this is what I came up with and it actually turned out really well (my boyfriend loved it!).

It's also low in sodium and has high protein and fiber.

  • Needs more sauce though. I added water, v8, and pasta sauce. Also, the meat needed some seasoning. Otherwise, great. - 12/22/09

  • Yumm! This was great! I love garlic and this chili was really garlicy (6 cloves!). For people who don't love garlic as much as I do, I would recommend using about 3-4 cloves. Yumm it really fills you up and tastes great! - 7/5/09
