Traditionally, I have always served chili, cornbread, and a simple salad on Christmas Eve. I make the chili ahead of time so that all I have to do is reheat it in those last frantic hours of pre-Christmas activity. I make the cornbread right before the meal, and just wrap some lettuce into bowls for the salad.

Stovetop Method

Stick To Your Ribs Chili freezes well for a quick meal or snack.

If you like beans in your chili, you can add a can or two of drained and rinsed Eden Black Soy Beans. If you like pasta in your chili, (making it “con carne”), you can add some al dente low carbohydrate macaroni. If you like a thinner chili, you can thin Stick To Your Ribs Chili very nicely with V-8 or a generic vegetable juice. V-8 has fewer carbohydrates than tomato juice does. Just be certain that the brand you buy does not have any sugar in the ingredients list.
