1 tbsp red cayenne pepper
2 can tomato sauce
3 tbsp new mexico (or other hot)

Contributed to the echo by: Michael Gallagher Bob, here is my
variation of a chili recipe with beans in it. If the people here
don't like beans with their chili, I'll give a substitution. DON'T
change anything, for this is the way you should make authentic Texas
chili--not the cheap imitation stuff.
Wash beans in colander and soak overnight. Wash again next day, and
place in large chili pot. Cover with water about 1/2 to 3/4 inch over
beans; simmer, covered, for about 2-1/2 hours or until done.
If substituting beans with the lean beef sirloin, brown the meat 1
pound at a time, preferably in a non-stick skillet without any oil.
Place the meat in large chili pot. You will also need 1 more 12 ounce
can of tomato sauce and 1 to 2 10 ounce cans of fat-skimmed beef
stock. You will add the extra can of tomato sauce and the can of beef
stock in the next paragraph of directions.
Brown meat and place in large saucepan. Add all of the other
ingredients and spices. Mix well. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour. When
beans are done, add contents of saucepan to chili pot and simmer for
30 to 45 minutes. Makes 15 to 20 servings, 225 calories each (205
with out the oil). Salt and pepper to taste.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of the food label that claims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Dietary fiber is important
Cutting the carbs in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
Wonder foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, rose hip puree and winter squash)
These colorful plants contain carotenes thought by many to play a role in helping stop cancer, specifically those cancers involving the lungs and stomach. Most are also low in calories, so are ideal for including in your diet.
