Paleo people! Autumn is here, and it’s time for a big bowl of chili.
Of course, this sort of thing is tricky because chili traditionally holds a megaton of legumes. Which, if you’ve read anything titled Paleo 101, you’ll know is a no-no when following the caveman ways.
No problemo! We’ve stirred up a giant pot of Paleo Chili so good, you won’t even miss the other stuff. This delicious dish uses grassfed ground beef aplenty (feel free to swap in bison, if you prefer) and organic fire-roasted tomatoes to make a thick and savory pot of spoonable goodness.
But wait! That’s not all! Before you prepare to serve giant bowls of this piping hot chili, add a dollop of fresh-blended avocado cream and the most glorious jalapeno salsa.
I think you’ll agree: This recipe is paleo perfection. Scroll on through the step-by-steps and discover how to make yourself a batch!
Ingredient Line-Up! One giant pot of chili, 5 basic ingredients. Life is so yummy when it’s easy. Isn’t it?
Start by browning the ground beef in a giant pot. You’ll also add some garlic and onion, browning until the whole mixture is cooked and aromatic.
Take note: to get that great chili texture, use a spatula to really break up your ground beef into tiny, spoonable pieces. No giant chunks allowed!
Add three packets of Old El Paso™ taco seasoning for a superquick seasoning. Or follow the recipe below for our strictly paleo seasoning mix.
With beef browned, add two cans of fire-roasted Muir Glen™ tomatoes. One crushed, one diced. The varying tomato cuts give your pot of chili both hearty texture and scrumptious sauciness.
Now, chili is all well and good. But a dollop of Avocado Cream and Jalapeno Salsa will send you over the moon. Grab 5 additional easy ingredients (jalapeno, green onion, cilantro, avocado, coconut milk) and whip up the final half of this dish.
Then grab a ladle because it’s time to enjoy.
Spoon giant bowls of chili, top with avocado cream and sprinkle with a hefty sprinkle of jalapeno.
