The Best Syn Free Chili | Slimming World Recipe

Delicious Syn Free Chili Con Carne.. The perfect Slimming World Friendly recipe.

This easy chili recipe is the best. It requires no fancy ingredients, comes together so quickly and easily, it can be perfect on its own or served with rice, wedges or even vegetables. 

A big bowl of piping hot chilli sprinkled with cheese is one of my go to winter comfort foods and it is completely Syn free so why not? I always add Kidney beans to my chilli but if you aren’t a fan which I know a lot of people aren’t, why not try swapping for sweet corn?

This recipe is perfect for keeping in an air tight container for 2 – 3 days and reheating. It can also be frozen and kept for up to 1 month. Please defrost completely before reheating. So feel free to batch cook to your hearts content.

      Hi there Mary

      We don’t offer a print option because we prefer people to come back to the site to use the recipe again.. this is for a few reasons

      1. The site pays for itself from google advertising revenue and if you don’t visit we don’t get any income to keep it running.
      2. Recipes can change regularly
      3. Syn values can change and we are constantly updating them so we would prefer you to always have an up to date recipe 🙂

      thanks so much for visiting
