Don’t be fooled by the look of this pale colored chili. Yes it’s not a traditional chili but it’s really great tasting. Much lighter than most, it includes some unusual chili ingredients such as potatoes, hominy and white kidney beans. What a yummy way to add more fiber to your diet. Just one cup contains 7 grams of fiber! Hat’s off to Ruby Tuesday’s for their chicken and white bean chili. It contains 228 calories, 8 grams of fat and 5 grams of fiber. Make a pot of our delicious chili tonight…You’ll love it!
