Black Soy Bean Chili Recipe

Okay, I was nervous to try any kind of chili without my much loved light red kidney beans in it, but it turned out terrific!  Better than that or I wouldn’t be sharing it!  And it is football season and I was really wanting my game day chili!  Now I can and you can too!

Low Carb Chili with Beans
A Low Carb option for chili using black soy beans.
  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 medium Onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • One 15 ounce can Tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 2 tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin, ground
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano, ground
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Smoky Paprika Powder
  • Dash Cayenne or Chipotle Powder
  • Two 15 ounce cans Black Soy Beans, drained & rinsed
  • for serving Cheese
  • for serving Green Onions, chopped
  • for serving Sour Cream
Brown the ground beef over medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Pour off fat. Add diced tomatoes and tomato paste, stir. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, paprika and stir. Add chipotle or cayenne to taste. Add black soy beans and stir. Let simmer for an hour. If it becomes too dry, add water small amounts at a time. Serve and add cheese, green onions and sour cream as each desire.


Prep time: 10 minutes. Cook time: 1 hour 20 minutes.  Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes.  Yield: 8 servings

This is about 4.125 Net Carbs per servings for 8 servings.  We tend to eat larger bowls and so for 6 servings it is about 5.5 Net Carbs per serving.  Too, if you add in the cheese, green onions or sour cream your carbs will start adding up with 1 Net Carb per each ingredient.  It depends on how many Net Carbs you have to play with for the day.

In comparison, had I done this recipe with light red kidney beans, the Net Carbs per serving for 6 servings would have been about 20 Net Carbs.  You can see the difference!!!!  Why?  The black soy beans are loaded with fiber that lowers the Net Carb count.

I like Mexene brand chili powder.  There are every kind of chili powders out there, it just happens to be what I grew up with and still love.

I used Eden Organic Black Soy Beans.  DELICIOUS!
