As you can see, this chili recipe received it’s name for the pretty-snowy-white colored ingredients. Don’t let the white fool you though! Lots of healthy items! It also contains a few Magical Christmas Ingredients! There’s a special “snowflake” component that you probably won’t find in other chili recipes ~ The Grinch (Mr. Greenie himself) makes a small appearance ~ Plus a potent crimson Christmas spice adds a touch of holiday flavor!

Because I love to top chili with cheese and sour cream (both S items), I needed a substitute for beans to make this an S chili. the soft “snowflakes” are a perfect replacement! I do incorporate one can of beans in this recipe. Because this makes a huge pot of soup, you can partake in a few great white northern beans and still stay in S territory! There are only 11g of carbs in 1/2 cup so I doubt you will be eating 1/2 cup in 1 serving. If you’re uncomfortable with this, add more “snowflakes” and less beans.
