Beef and Turkey Chili (paleo, scd)

Perhaps why chili is called chili will forever be a conundrum. Maybe it's because of the temperature it has to be outside for you to crave the warmth of said chili. I am not partial to seasonal eating, however, and especially when a recipe turns out this good. I packed it with extra protein (see previous post regarding my curiosity with macros) and slow cooked it for ten hours. Hope you enjoy.


1 lb 97% lean ground beef
1 lb 99% lean ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tbsp coconut or olive oil

1 large green bell pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 medium carrots
4 stalks of celery
2 small habenero peppers (optional if you don't like spicy)
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
salt, to taste


In a pan over medium-high heat, heat oil and saute onions, beef, and turkey until browned through. Add meat mixture to a slow cooker along with all of the other ingredients (chop all of the vegetables first, obviously.)
Slow cook all day for at least 6 hours on low. I left mine on for ten.

Makes me wish I still ate oyster crackers....

  1. Roasted sweet potatoes make a wonderful base for chili, if you eat them.
