Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing for low sugar diets! I am always looking for low sugar meals, and chili is one of my favorites. As I do not eat red meat at all, this is perfect and was so yummy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chili Heaven Being health conscious and a diabetic , I thought my days of enjoying chili were over. I tried making chili with other brands of sweetners but the aftertaste was awful! Then I came across this recipe using truvia and I thought I'd give it a try and am I ever glad I did. This chili is one of the best I have ever tasted! (High praise coming from a former Texan) It's savory and delicious, even my finicky son loves it. I will definitely be making this dish again.
