Recipe Notes

Any sugar free salsa will work with this recipe. I prefer a medium spicy salsa to give my chili a little extra zip. Try different types of salsa to change up the flavor profile.

The nutrition label does not include the extra condiments such as cheese, sour cream or avocado. I add the avocado to increase my fat content. Be sure to include the extra condiment calculations in your macros if you are keeping track.
