Chilli con carne
The recipe that I use is from p125 of Eat Well, Live Well with Diabetes. I am not diabetic, but I bought this book because it contains low GI recipes, which are useful for everyone looking to keep their weight in check. The only modification that I make is to add frozen vegetables to the dish. This may make purists balk, but the addition of vegetables means that I end up with a self-contained, all in one dish, and don't have to cook additional vegetables. I serve the chilli con carne with boiled rice.
This really hits the spot on a cold night- it is spicy without bringing tears to the eyes, and is very filling. In a word - perfect!
