Paleo Chili

28 Oct

With the fall and winter seasons upon us, it is definitely time for some comfort foods. Pre-paleo I wasn’t a fan of beans, so chili wasn’t one of my favorite foods (well, I loved Melissa Howell’s chili, but that’s it!). Now that Brett and I follow a paleo diet, beans aren’t a problem for us! I found this recipe on Pinterest and became determined to make it!

I did make a few changes and the results were awesome! I’ve cooked it almost weekly since finding it!

2Tbsp cooking oil (I use bacon grease or olive oil)
2lbs. ground turkey (or beef)
2Tbsp chili powder
2Tbsp cumin
1tsp oregano
1tsp allspice
1tsp salt
1 large white onion diced
4oz. tomato paste
28oz. can crushed tomatoes
14 oz can crushed tomatoes
14 oz can diced tomatoes


Place the cooking oil, onion and ground meat into a large saucepan. Brown the meat.


Leaving all the healthy fat from the meat, add all other ingredients!

Simmer for 1-2 hours (I only wait an hour before devouring mine).


I always sliced up an avocado and place in chili!

    Hi, do you think there is anyway to cut down the sodium (canned tomatoes) by maybe just using real tomatoes (crush them by hand)?
