A good way to serve up this low salt chili con carne recipe is to use baked potato halves for serving bowls. This way you get the additional benefits of all the good minerals in the potatoes, too.

Another idea is to use small sourdough bread bowls for serving up your chili. Note that the bread will add additional sodium to the meal, but since this chili is so low in salt, it may just fit your own personal diet guidelines.
