You are not supposed to have flour or kidney beans in the induction phase

I would leave out the flour and change kidney beans to another variety, perhaps Borlotti

Could not believe this was good for us. I don't think we'll ever make packaged chili again.

This was yummy, though I thought it needed a bit of salt.

Great recipe, I added a bit more heat and a little salt.

For Virgin diet I would use brown rice flour instead of regular flour, but otherwise it would be acceptable I believe.
