Nutritional values

The figure-friendly chili is on the table in just a quarter of an hour. The white beans bring a lot of vegetable protein into play, which the body needs for building muscles, cells and hormones, among other things. Together with these proteins, plenty of fibre ensures that the feeling of fullness lasts for a long time.

Serve a little bread with the chilli or put a dollop of sour cream on each plate: the protein it contains ideally complements the proteins from the legumes and thus helps to create a protein portion that can easily compete with a small steak.
