Paleo Chili

paleo chili
Beans are synonymous with good chili, but beans are a big no-no if you’re doing paleo. So how does one create a paleo chili dish? Simply leave the beans out of the recipe, of course! This delicious paleo chili recipe compensates for the lack of beans with lots of ground beef (grass-fed is ideal), and a healthy serving of garlic and spices. Even without beans, the end result is a pretty darn good chili. Feel free to substitute ground chicken or turkey for the beef if you’d like.
