This was was also a great success and much liked.
CHILI CON CARNE -

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 stalk celery, chopped

Heat large skillet on medium heat. Add oil, onion, celery and pepper until tender, but not brown. Add ground beef, breaking into small pieces and cook until brown.

But of course, if you're on a renal diet, you must be careful with potassium, phosphorus, and sodium...

Better to remain silent and assumed a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
