As a bodybuilding competitor and nutritional coach for various competitive athletes, I’m always seeking out ways to get in a protein packed low carbohydrate meal . This recipe puts a twist on the traditional chili removing the beans and adding some extra kick. It’s easy to make with minimal ingredients and can be made in a large quantity to eat over multiple days.
