Fast Paleo Chili

Fast Paleo Chili (Serves 2-3)

1 lb Grass fed Hamburger
2 Medium or one Large Red and/or Orange Peppers (it adds a little sweet to offset the spicy) Chopped into 1/4-1/2 in pieces
1 hot pepper (I like Anaheim, personally, but use what you like)
1 medium Yellow Onion, chopped
1-2 tbsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp cumin
3/4 bottle of low sodium spicy v8
1 small 6oz can organic tomato paste

Brown onion, peppers and hamburger in coconut oil (I’ve recently started saving about 1/3 of the hot pepper back to drop in after everything is combined to simmer into the chili, it changes the flavor profile), add tomato paste and V8 and bring to simmer, simmering 30-60 minutes, stirring periodically. 

To be honest, this is the chili I make about once every other week during the winter, so I pretty much eyeball the spices at this point, but this should give you a good idea of how easy it is to get a tasty pot of chili on the stove in VERY short order.  I encourage you to toy with the ingredients (my wife likes to throw in a can of organic diced tomatoes or use Organic, low sodium Tomato juice instead of V8).  If I’m making it for just myself, I’ll also use spicier chili powder as well as red pepper flakes to kick it up a notch.

  1. I can get ghost peppers at my local street market. I haven’t had the brass to do it yet, though.
