Paleo Turkey Chili

4 Jan

For Christmas, my amazing sister bought me “OMG that’s Paleo?” by Juli Bauer, otherwise known as PaleOMG.  She’s an amazing blogger and also an amazingly creative chef.  I’ve made so many of her recipes and tweaked them to be my own.  For this recipe, I took her Smokey Bacon Chili recipe and changed a couple things.  The original recipe is also delicious, feel free to make either of them (or both), just make it, you won’t regret it!

Ingredients:

  • 1lb ground turkey
  • about 6 slices of thick cut bacon, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • (optional) 1/2 sweet potato per person

Turkey Chili

 

Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, cook your cubed bacon
  2. While the bacon is cooking down, chop your veggies
  3. When the bacon starts to crisp, add your veggies to the pot
  4. Let cook for about 5 minutes and add the ground turkey and spices, mix it up good
  5. Allow the turkey to cook for about 15 minutes and add the tomatoes and tomato sauce
  6. Mix well and let it all together while cooking on low stirring occasionally
  7. I eat this over 1/2 of a sweet potato (which i poke holes in and microwave to cook) or have had it with poached eggs for breakfast.  It’s so good you’ll want to eat it with every meal!
  8. ENJOY!!!
