Whole30 Simple Chili

*I'm sitting at home this fine Tuesday morning ... it's pouring down rain with thunder and lightning and I'm nursing a major headache ... does anyone else have a barometer head like me? Whenever the pressure changes and the rain comes my sinuses just flare up ... waiting for all the meds to kick in before I drive to work (2 hours late already) ... 

So ... I shared this recipe back in January and figured since it's JUNE and some of you are playing the Whole30 game with me, I'm sharing it again ... mind you, I am NOT doing a Whole30 right this moment!

#JuneWhole30

Yes, I do have a Whole30 Compliant chili recipe but Hubby isn't a HUGE fan of the chocolate in it ... as minimal as it is ... so when I saw this recipe, I thought, sure, why not, lets give it a whirl.

I'm glad I did!


AND ... it's perfect for the Sunday Soup theme!

Here's how I did it!

2 pounds ground beef (score, I even have marked down grassfed stuff in the freezer!)
1 onion, chopped fine (hubby hates chunky onions)
4 tbs tomato paste (you know to freeze your leftovers in a Ziploc bag and just break off what you need, right?)
3 tbs chili powder
1 tbs garlic powder
2 tbs cumin
1 carton of beef broth
2 14 oz cans of roasted fire roasted tomatoes or just plain diced tomatoes. The fire roasted ones are really worth looking for though, trust me!
generous dash of salt & pepper

In large pot, cook your ground beef and onions til no longer pink.

Drain the excess fat from the pan.

Add the rest of your ingredients and stir well to combine all.

Allow to simmer 45 minutes or so, giving a stir occasionally. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

NOW.

I had this as just a simple bowl of chili. Topped it with some sliced green onions and a little chopped cilantro.


THEN.

I had this over a bowl of spiralized zucchini ... topped with some diced onions and a squeeze of lime ... oh yeah ...



AND THEN ...

I cooked up some spiralized WHITE sweet potatoes aka HANNAH (them things are HARD to find, by the way!) in some ghee on the stove, laid the taters out on a plate, added the chili and topped with some guacamole and a little salsa ... O M G! That was the BEST!

I need to make these again soon so I can get better pics and share the process!
SWOODLES ... to die for!

See, this Whole30 thing ain't so bad after all, is it?

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
