Whole30 Classic Chili Recipe

Serves 2 with leftovers


  • 1 pound ground meat (beef, bison, turkey, lamb)
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 bell peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • *1 Jalapeno – optional if you like it spicy

Heat a large pot over medium heat and add in the ground meat. Cook the meat until browned, about 7-10 minutes and then remove it from the pot and put it into a separate dish. 

Next, add the onions, garlic, cumin, paprika, chili powder, mustard powder, and salt to the pot. Cook until the onions are translucent, about 4-5 minutes.

Then, add the bell peppers, diced tomatoes and broth and add the meat back in. Turn the heat to high and when it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 1 hour uncovered. 

Garnish with cilantro, jalapenos, or crushed pepper for added flavor. Serve and enjoy!
