Again, another great recipe for people on a renal diet.

This was was also a great success and much liked.

CHILI CON CARNE -

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
16 ounce can stewed tomatoes, blenderized

1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell or chili pepper
1 1/2 cup of water

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.

I love chile, and this is pretty close to my standard Betty Crocker recipe. I cook down the meat with the onions and celery. I use two cans of tomatos and no water. I also add red kidney beans for the last 20-30 minutes. Worcester (sp?) sauce, 1 tsp sugar, frozen corn, and other spices such as coriander and cumin work well too.

There's so many variations. It's hard to go wrong.

Virginia Woolf: “Consider how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, what precipices and lawns sprinkled with bright flowers a little rise of temperature reveals, what ancient and obdurate oaks are uprooted in us by the act of sickness, how we go down in the pit of death and feel the waters of annihilation close above our heads and wake thinking to find ourselves in the presence of the angels and the harpers when we have a tooth out and come to the surface in the dentist's arm-chair and confuse his "Rinse the mouth-rinse the mouth" with the greeting of the Deity stooping from the floor of Heaven to welcome us - when we think of this, as we are so frequently forced to think of it, it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature”

It's the most adaptable recipe I know! My family will add a bit of sour cream on top and eat it with tortillas. I make mine quite spicy!

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