This is my diabetic chili recipe. There are a couple of things about this recipe that are unusual. However, I think you will agree that the changes are worth while. First, I use sirloin for the meat. Sirloin is somewhat expensive compared with stew beef, that many people use for chili recipes. However, I really like getting very lean meat to keep the fat content down.


  • 1lb Beef Sirloin
  • 1/2 cup Dry Kidney Beans
  • 1/2 cup Dry Black Beans
  • 29oz Petit Cut Tomatoes, No Salt Added (Diced)
  • 8oz Tomato Sauce, No Salt
  • 2 Medium Onions
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 2 Garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 5oz Low Fat Grated Chedder Cheese


Step 1. Soak the beans overnight in seperate containers, approximately 8 hours. Place the containers in the refrigerator. The next morning drain the water.
Step 2. Cut Sirloin into bite size pieces. Lightly brown the sirloin in a pan. You can choose to just add the raw sirloin to the crock pot. The meat should cook all the way through if you cook the chili for the full 8 to 10 hours. I prefer to brown it first, however.
Step 3. Chop the green pepper and onion. Mince the garlic. Add these ingredients and all other ingredients to the slow cooker.
Step 4. Set the slow cooker to low and cook for 8-10 hours.
Step 5. Enjoy
