Chili Dog Vegetable Soup

I recently found a recipe for Low Carb Chili Dog Soup over on I Breathe, I’m Hungry. I had been wanting to make chili, but when you are doing the low carb thing chili can get kind of boring…you can’t add beans and cheese/sour cream are frowned upon (especially for those doing IP).

So, while I was making the recipe I decided to ramp up the soup with some veggies to make it more filling. I think I was pretty successful because I didn’t even miss the beans or the diary! And in case you were wondering….it does taste like a chili dog!

I think this is the perfect recipe just in time for fall – whether you make it as a quick evening meal or cook it in the slow cooker it will definitely warm you up!

Recipe: Sort of Spicy Chili/Vegetable Soup

I don’t have a really good name for this soup…but it is freaking delicious and its kind of a hybrid between a chili and vegetable soup! Thus, I arrived at the name “Sort of Spicy Chili/Vegetable Soup” – very creative I know!

Since Autumn is upon us I have started making a batch of this every week to have for lunch or dinner. It is so ridiculously good and filling I don’t even miss the bread and crackers that I used to have with soups. The soup, for the most part, is good for Phase I of the Ideal Protein plan – but honestly, I think anyone would love this stuff!

The whole recipe is super simple (and cheap) and requires items you probably already have in your pantry. Plus, you can add any vegetables that you like that I didn’t add here.Read More »
