Paleo Chili

WE LOVE CHILI!!! Chili has become a staple in our household.  My kids have become a huge fan of my infamous very meaty chili recipe and can now tolerate a little spice.  I usually make a huge pot which gives us enough for a few days.

We eat chili with eggs and also we make Mexican salads (chili, guacamole, hot peppers, sweet peppers, olives and spinach).


4 lbs lean grass fed ground beef
1 large can crushed tomatoes (look for the one where the only ingredient is tomatoes)
1 sml can diced tomatoes (again, look for natural here)

1 large can of whole tomatoes (use just the tomatoes)
1 large onion diced

1 green pepper diced

4 cups of sliced mushrooms
3 cloves garlic minced or about
2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tbs ground cumin
4 tbs chili powder


Brown ground beef. It doesn’t have to be cooked  completely at this point. Add garlic, spices and tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and green pepper. Simmer on low heat for a couple of hours. It gets better the longer it cooks.

I add thinly sliced green onions when serving. Enjoy!
