The meat in your chili is an excellent source of protein and if you make your chili with beans, you have a great second source of it too. You need fiber in your diet and the chilies, peppers, and beans in this dish are excellent sources of it. Fiber not only works to help keep you regular but it also slows the rate at which sugar is absorbed into your body.
