I started with the “chili-as it should be!” recipe from Paleo Comfort Foods.
- 1 tbs. coconut oil
- 1 tbs red chili flakes
- 1 lb stew beef, cubed
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs ground cumin
- 4 garlic cloves, diced
- 1 tsp cayenne
- 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (canned food section)
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 cups onion, diced
- 1/2 cup beef stock
- 42 oz. canned diced tomatoes
- 8 oz. tomato paste
- 3 cups bell pepper, chopped
Heat a large sauce pan, with the coconut oil, over medium/high. When the oil is hot, add the meat and brown. Drain the fat, remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
Combine the olive oil, cumin, garlic, cayenne and chipotle peppers in a food processor. Mix for a minute, or until smooth.
Cook the onions and bell pepper in the sauce pan over medium until onions are translucent. Add the meat back in, and the spice paste. Stir to combine. Add in tomatoes, tomato paste, and beef stock. Stir to mix all ingredients and simmer for 2 hours.
If you would rather fix in a slow cooker, just brown the meat, and blend the spices as above, then combine all ingredients in the slow cooker. I let mine go for 10 hours.
Don’t top with cheese if you are doing a 30 day challenge.
