Total Comfort Food.  I grew up eating chili on a regular basis.  It was delicious but was full of pre-packaged processed ingredients.  This chili recipe has the same spicy kick but with clean ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of sweet potatoes (you can use frozen or the steam bags as well)
  • 1 teaspoon of avocado oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 lb of grass-fed ground beef 85%/15% fat ratio
  • 1 can .6 oz of organic tomato paste
  • 1 can 14.5oz of organic fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons of cumin
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 Tablespoons of scallions

Directions:

  1. Peel potatoes, and dice them into cubes.
  2. Microwave for 5 minutes to soften them.
  3. Add avocado oil to dutch oven and put on medium heat.
  4. Add onion and sauté.
  5. Once onion is a bit softened, add in ground beef.  Brown completely.
  6. Add in tomato paste and fire roasted diced potatoes.  Add water.  Bring up the heat until it bubbles.
  7. Once it is bubbling, add in spices and mix thoroughly.
  8. Add in the partially cooked sweet potatoes; mixing
  9. Cover with lid, bring down to low heat and let simmer for 30 minutes.

Note:  This can be served as is, or over a hot dog to make a chili dog.  It does freeze really well.  I freeze it flat in Stasher bags and re-heat in the bag when I want a quick meal.
