The final step allows you to adjust how spicy the dish is. I thought long and hard about whether or not I should add hot sauce or sriracha and in the end… the sriracha sauce won! I think this gives it a more ethnic flavor and isn’t as overpowering as a hot sauce would be! If you are as obsessed with sriracha as I am, then feel free to top the chili with more.

I remember the first time I made this for my family and my parents immediately said they would pass because they were worried a spicy dish like this would leave them feeling uncomfortable the remainder of the night. This made me sad because no on should have to avoid foods and let frequent heartburn ruin the holidays. It really got me thinking… what is the best way to deal with heartburn, gas and indigestion so no one is having to give up on enjoying the holiday meals with family? I recently discovered that there is a way to enjoy comfort food without the discomfort thanks to Boiron!

Whether it be poor eating habits, overindulgence, or stress, Boiron has meltaway tabet for each of those symptoms. Did you know these symptoms can also be caused by trigger foods such as coffee, alcohol, citrus, and foods that are spicy, fried or high in fat? While many trigger foods we try to avoid, this doesn’t mean you have to completely eliminate them. Acidil may be taken before a meal that contains a known “trigger food,”, after a meal or whenever symptoms strike.

What intrigued me most about this brand and its product was that Boiron Acidil is a homeopathic medicine made with sustainably sourced, plant-based active ingredients. They are also the #1 best-selling heartburn homeopathic medicine in natural food stores, which tells me that people really love this product! I also loathe having to swallow vitamins and such, so I was pleased to discover that the unflavored meltaway tablets dissolve in your mouth, without needing water or food. One meal that always leaves my stomach feeling upset and bloated is chili, the beans and meat does not agree with my. I decided to create this chili as an alternative, replacing a lot of the beans with veggies… while pairing the meal with an Acidil.  This has truly been a life changer and I can now enjoy one of my favorite comfort foods without the discomfort!
 
Acidil is available to purchase at RiteAid, Walgreens, Sprouts Farmers Market, Whole Foods Market, Vitamin Shoppe, and online at amazon.com, iherb.com, and vitacost.com. Visit boironusa store locator for the full list of locations.
