*Almost* Primal Mom’s Chili



Ok, so I know on the primal diet, chili beans are a no-no.  And there’s lots of primal chili recipes out there that avoid chili beans, none of which are very good (in my opinion).  What’s chili without beans?  Meat sauce, that’s what.

I took my mom’s tried & true recipe and reduced the beans to 1 can, and added more ground beef.  It’s yummy even though it’s not-quite-primal.

Mom’s Chili

1 lb ground beef

1/2 lb of italian sausage

1 yellow onion

2 green peppers

1 teaspoon of minced garlic

2 14 oz cans of petite diced tomatoes

1 beef bouillon cube

1/2 teaspoon of basil

1 1/2 teaspoons of cumin

3 teaspoons of chili powder

1 can of chili beans

Cook the meat, and drain off the fat.  Chop the onions and green peppers & add to the meat.  Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the veggies are tender.  Add garlic and cook for another minute.  Stir in tomatoes, bouillon cube, and seasoning.  SImmer covered for 1 1/2 hours, covered.  Stir a few times during the 1 1/2 hours.  Then add your chili beans and cook for another 45 minutes more.

Serve with cheese, sour cream, avocado, etc…. Enjoy!
