Beanless Paleo Chili

Friday, October 24th, 2014



So as you probably know, I have a two month old baby and right now our world pretty much revolves around him. I have learned just how productive I can be when he naps!  Getting a healthy meal out to our family can be a difficult task if I don’t plan ahead. I have to chose meals that will forgive me for stepping away, and chili is one of them.  This recipe can easily be adapted for a slow cooker too, but our family has found it’s yummier cooked traditionally.  This recipe is bare bones chili recipe…one I hope you’ll add your own flare to.  My kids prefer a mild chili, so this recipe is definitely a kid pleaser.

Here’s what you need:

* 2lbs of ground beef

* 1 onion

* green or red pepper (I usually prefer green peppers)

* 1 quart of stewed tomatoes or a 16 oz. can of stewed tomatoes



* 1 tbs. chili powder

* 1/2 tsp garlic powder

* 1/4 tsp onion powder

* 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

* 1/4 tsp dried oregano

* 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

* 1 1/2 tsp cumin

* 1 tsp Ancho Chili Powder

* salt and pepper to taste



1. Brown the meat in a sauce pan, while it’s browning slice up your onion and pepper.

2. Once the meat has browned, toss in your sliced veggies, and your can/jar of tomatoes.  Juices and all.

3. Reduce heat to low, and let simmer covered for 2-4 hours, check occasionally to stir.

4.  If you’re using a crock pot, add a cup of stock or water to the mix and set on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4-5. The last 30 minutes or so, remove the lid from the crock pot to let any extra juices boil down.

5. Serve with a healthy serving of guacamole and garnish with some cilantro.  Enjoy!
