Best Paleo Chili Ever

Paleo eating seems to be the hot thing now with the likes of Lebron James taking it up a year or so ago, it seems to be getting more and more publicity.

I would love to say we are super strict paleo in our home but that is not the case.

We are mostly Paleo but we do slip in an out of the paleo lifestyle on occasion.

In my opinion Chili is one of the worlds most perfect foods.
It has…

  • Great Protein and Fat or Low fat (Beef, Turkey, Venison, ect.)
  • Great Carbs (tomatoes, beans, or sweet potatoes, and carrots)
  • Most importantly it is in one pot.  Easy to make and not time consuming

My kids crush chili every time we make it so we make it a lot.

There are tons of people out there in the paleo community who get frustrated because they cannot eat beans on the paleo diet, thus they cannot have chili. This Chili recipe is Strict Paleo.  So all the paleo people rejoice!!!

Cincinnati Chili Dog Bowls

Cincinnati Chili Dog Bowl is great. There is a different spin on the ingredients since it is inspired from the famous “Skyline Chili” in Cincinnati.

The chili is sort of a Cincinnati-inspired chili, with somewhat deep, complex flavors. This dish has all the familiar flavors of a chili dog. It’s a great chili to try-especially if you’re a chili dog fan. Much easier to eat when served in a bowl. VIDEO FOR THAT AS WELL.

Prep Time: 15-17 min
Serves: 4-6

• 1 tsp. cumin
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1/2 tsp. black pepper
