Saturday Afternoon Chili

Saturday Afternoon Chili

This weekend I had craving for some chili! So, I asked my mother in law if she had an easy chili recipe to share, which of course she did! The next thing you know I am adding and modifying the recipe she sent over, until I had the final product, which I now call Saturday Afternoon Chili!

Note, if you want to make this recipe totally paleo, just omit the beans and add 1 chopped red or green pepper…which, by the way, you can add anyhow if you like! I follow a paleo food plan 80-90% of the time, leaving room for a meal or two per week for some non-paleo ingredients, such as properly prepared legumes in this case! Although I have made non-bean paleo chili many times, as I am generally not a huge fan of beans, this weekend I felt the need for some☺
