GLC1968 Posted May 20, 2013 Share Posted May 20, 2013 I altered my mom's chili recipe to be bean free when I first went paleo almost two years ago. I'm sharing it here because it's so easy and so good! For anyone who found that Well Fed's chocolate chili gave them heartburn - maybe this one won't? (I had that problem with the Well Fed version but this one is fine for me...) Mom's Chili 2 lbs grass-fed ground beef 1 large onion, roughly chopped 28 oz crushed tomatoes (check for versions without sugar) 2 T chili powder 1 tsp garlic salt 1 bay leaf 1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper for heat or aleppo pepper for depth 1 bell pepper, chopped (I usually use orange or yellow) 2 celery stalks, chopped Brown beef and onions in large pot. Dump in all remaining ingredients once beef is browned and stir. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for about a hour or longer. Eat topped with avocado! (Or stick in fridge and reheat the next day - it gets better once the flavors have had a chance to blend) This can be done in a crock pot. Just crumble up beef (raw) and toss it all into the pot. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
