Fall always has me excited to reach for cozy sweaters and hot bowls of chili. So, I made a delicious kidney stone-safe version for us all to try!
Note that I took out the traditional black beans and replaced them with green beans. Remember folks, this is a portion game, and although green beans have oxalate, it’s less than most beans.
I didn’t want to use chili spices—I was having a taste for more of an Italian flavor. You can easily sub out my seasonings for cumin, cayenne, chili powder, and other traditional chili flavors. YOUR kitchen, YOUR rules.Print
