Spicy Paleo Chili

15 minutes
1 hour 15 minutes

Chili is always a favorite of mine. But right now I’m limiting carbs, so and needed a chili fix. This Paleo Chili recipe just what I need right now to get that fix!

I used 3 different heat sources – red pepper flakes, jalapeno, and roasted Poblano peppers to spice up this paleo chili.

And to get some extra protein into this chili, I used Pacific Foods Beef Bone Broth.

I thickened it up with tomato paste, which works well – but if you’re looking for a thick hearty chili, I suggest letting this sit over night to really thicken up.

Nothing beats a chili that really drains the sinuses. This isn’t a “have a glass of milk nearby” hot, but just enough to really hit the spot.

Topped with a good non-dairy cheese to get that cheese fix on your chili to keep everything paleo.

Or just use real cheese and congrats – You’ve gone Keto!
