Easy Chili Recipe

October 4, 2018

Are you looking for a little something awesome and easy to make? Great recipe idea for the fall football season, parties, and family get togethers. 


Paleo Chili (Very filling and Tasteful)


Yields 6-8 servings

Total time: 40 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes



  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef (or ground turkey, prefer 93/7)

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ cups onion, diced, about 1 large onion

  • ½ cup chopped celery, about 1 stalk

  • 1 ½ cups carrots, peeled and diced, about 4 medium carrots

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

  • 4 cups zucchinis, diced, about 2-3 medium zucchinis

  • 1 15-ounce can tomato puree or tomato sauce

  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes



  1. In your seasoned skillet or large cast iron pot, brown meat and garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat is thoroughly cooked and browned. Drain off excess fat, set aside.

  2. Add oil, onions, celery, carrots, and seasonings to the skillet and cook until translucent over medium-high heat, about 5-7 minutes. Once onions are golden and veggies are midway cooked, add zucchini and cook for 2 minutes, making sure you stir everything well.

  3. Add cooked meat, tomato puree/sauce, and tomatoes into the pot and stir well. Bring everything to a boil, stirring frequently, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

  4. Check on the amazing mixture every so often and stir. Serve immediately.


This is a very thick chili recipe. Add up to 1 cup of additional liquid (tomato sauce, broth or water) to thin out the sauce if you prefer. Also, be sure to cut the carrots smaller so they can cook better. A tweak would be to replace the carrots with diced sweet potatoes. Mmmm
