Paleo Chili Recipe Is A Must Try!
I found this Paleo Chili recipe by LNLdad on all recipes, thought I’d give it a try. It’s so good I had to post. Healthy too! If you are not familiar with Paleo diet you get get a lot of free information here. Paleo is made without beans. In the west we typically include beans, but I think even non-paleo eaters will enjoy this deep smoky flavorful chili. This is best made a day ahead so the flavors can meld together. Serve with green onions and sour cream. Instead of using the bison I substituted with 100% grass fed 85% lean beef (just my personal preference).
1 dried chipotle pepper, stem removed
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground bison
1/2 pound spicy ground pork sausage
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Soak chipotle pepper in boiling water until softened, about 10 minutes. Remove pepper from water and mince.
Melt coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir garlic and minced chipotle into onion mixture and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir bison and sausage into onion mixture. Cook and stir until meat is browned and crumbly, 10 to 12 minutes.
Stir chili powder, cumin, oregano, cocoa powder, and Worcestershire sauce into the bison mixture; add crushed tomatoes, salt, and pepper and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until flavors are blended, 10 minutes.
