I think I'll amend my old recipe & post it on our recipe board, just so we'll have it!

Shanny, I always made it using bacon and the grease from it. Not from Ham hocks...we loved it and used to have a Open House on New Years. Down here people eat cooked cabbage with it.

I started using ham hocks because they're a lot cheaper than bacon, but I think the flavors are about the same & with bacon you wouldn't have to debone the hocks either. Just different strokes for different folks.

We always used ham hocks and had it with rice. Adding bacon can only make it better!! When Shanny posts her recipe, why don't you post yours too? I'd be interested in the variation. Is the cabbage cooked in with the beans?

Hey! I'm a Chili guy too! But I thought that beans were not a recomended food for the diet? I sure miss them and my Chili. Are beans OK?
What about the tomato? Is there something special, a kind of tomato we can use?
I have 2 recipies, one of them calls for a lot less tomato sauce than the other. Maybe a good bet if I can give it a try sometime!

The best advice we can give is eat to your meter. Beans are often not okay, but if you can use regular beans and your meter doesn't explode, by all means use regular beans. But if you were following the thread to the end, you'll notice the conversation moved to black soybeans, which are not the same as kidney beans/pinto beans/red beans/etc - they're soybeans - there's a difference. And many of us have found that black soybeans don't spike us. Others find that black soybeans still cause a spike. So again I say eat to your meter.

Yeah Shanny.I also find this forum to have the best advice all around. It is the very first search I did on diabetes that landed me here, and I like the fact that there are living examples as the proof of the information offered here. I realy feel as though I will be one of us.

By the way I was bean crazy for a while and wanted to know about it. I did not see beans on the list in this forum. But as you know we live in a world that is full of debate. I can make a long list of my experiences with other people and diabetics over the last months and it would amount to reaking havoc on all fronts. Who insists low fat is very importent, and who insists that beans are a very importent part of a dibetics diet and you should eat a cup of them a day, and those who insist that low carb is a myth and that saturated fat is real bad, it is ok to have sugar if you eat less pasta at dinner, right up to the photo of the nice lady showing the bananas,pineapples,cereal,bread, carrots and beans for a healthy diabetic lifestyle.

And I could go on and on with this, but I am glad that I have had just a little time and opportunity to get some of it out of my system tonight. Been lacking time here on the forum because of too many other demands and problems daily.

I am happy to use fat as my energy source now instead of sugars. I understand the point that if we don't eat sugars (carbs) that our BGL will not spike.

I guess it is just the beginning for me but in a good space.

The Chili recipe did me in,
... some beans are harder to take than others :0)..

I don't get a "spike" from the recipe with a combination of black soy beans and kidney or pinto beans, but after some experimentation, I'm using only 2 cans of black soy beans now. It is lower carb overall, and also easier to make (no soaking of the dry beans).

Tim27818:
Made your Chili...... slight variations. (no onion or garlic) next time with garlic.
REALLY GOOD! Still eating it, one cup at a time. I will have a cup at noon.

Allowed dried pinto beans to sit in water for 24 hours before adding to chili and cooking chili for 4 hours.
Next time I will boil beans after sitting those 24 hours, or just use ALL black soybeans.
And my BS value was down 2 hours after first portions of this chili.... will keep looking.
