Paleo chili recipe


I know chili gets its name from the chili peppers/powder it contains, but when the weather gets chili, this seems like the best dish to make. I went for a hearty beanless chili which includes a good selection of good ole ground beef and for a slightly different texture some sirloin steak. After a long simmer you get a rich and hearty chili which is sure to warm you up on a cold winter night.
