I am new to paleo, doing well, and wanting to get into cooking this way a little more. I would like to hear good paleo chili recipes specifically, and also would like someone to point me in the direction of good paleo recipes in general. Thanks

Everyone else gave you a lot of yummy sounding traditional tomato chili recipes so here's something a little different: http://www.health-bent.com/soups/green-chile-chili

As far as tomato chili, my two secrets (Paleo or not) are using a variety of peppers and fresh basil.

Buy a Wick Fowler 2-Alarm Chili Kit and leave out the masa packet. My family's enjoyed it for 30 years and with said omission, it is paleo.

http://queen-of-the-stoneage.blogspot.com/2011/02/puppy-bowl-0-alarm-chili-with-kitty.html This is a recipe from my blog; turned out great! I've also done it with heart instead of the stew meat.

I've been virtually living off Melissa Joulwan's "Chocolate Chili" recipe ever since I read it... especially since I just got a fresh order of beef and my quarters come with about 80lbs of ground.

It's more like a chili con mole, unsweetened cocoa powder does wonderful things to both cumin and powdered red chili. The recipe is in the free sample of the Well Fed cookbook... but I still strongly recommend you get the book.

That being said, I've made these modifications to her recipe:

Less Cumin (2tablespoons down to 1.5 tablespoons)

More cocoa (1.5tablespoons up to 2 tablespoons)

Turmeric (1 tsp, it plays nice with chili and cumin)

Garam Masala instead of Allspice

Sub homemade broth for the beef broth, I've used chicken and turkey broth

Add 1 poblano chili and 1 jalepeno de-seeded and ribs removed, cook with the onions and garlic

Omit the extra water

And if you are using commercial meat, I strongly suggest the leanest ground beef you can get. "Oil Slick" chili is not pleasant to me, personally. My grass-fed beef is virtually fat-free, but the first time I made this recipe it was with my local shops "Butcher Beef" which is about 20% fat... tasty but unpleasant afterwards (heartburn).

Ah, you picked my favorite thing in the world at the moment! I make this every week (I find eating the same thing most of the time makes it easier for me...YMMV).

Anyway...I am in Australia so I'll list keep that in mind. Also, I'm not exactly in a major urban center as we just moved to a rural town in South Australia...my choices are quite limited at times.

  • 1 Kilo ground beef
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2-3 zuccini
  • 1/2 butternut squash
  • 1 can salsa
  • 1 large pepper
  • 2-3 tomatoes (depending on how watery you like it)

Optional

  • some mushrooms
  • onions

take veggies except tomato and brown them in coconut oil and set aside. Brown the beef on the stove. Combine everything including tomato and salsa in big pan on stove and let simmer for a bit. Stir occasionally.

LOVE!

Bonus...my wife likes this enough so I don't have to put beans in it and she'll eat it several times a week. I personally eat this everyday for lunch it is that good. If you like it spicier you could add some additional spices but I'm kind of a wuss ;)

Mark Sisson of Primal Blueprint fame, has a pretty good bison chili recipe that is good with beef too. General recipes, I love Sarah Fragoso of www.everydaypaleo.com! I've cooked my way through a huge portion of her blog and can't wait to receive her cookbook.
