For today's diabetic recipe I decided on Mesquite Chili. You get a smoked chili taste with this recipe and you make it in a crockpot. This also keeps you from heating the house up on those hot days.I think a nice green salad will go nice with this chili. If you can find canned chili flavored beans with jalapenos you can omit the chili powder. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Until tomorrow.
