Ha! Here it is… I decided to hold off on the meatball / sauce / green bean recipe and upload this tonight, I’ll upload the other one tomorow.. Both are good for the Whole30|Whole9, not sure about the 21 Day Sugar Detox though… I’m going to assume both are good to go! {If it’s not let me know so I can leave a note in here!}

My theory on chili is the same as my soups, I don’t really buy anything special for it. I use what I have in my fridge / freezer. Feel free to add steak tips, sausage, ground pork… whatever floats your boat {Left over filling works great in here too!}. As for veggies, also feel free to use what you’ve got at home, these are my personal favorite in chili though.

  1. • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  2. • 2 chicken breasts
  3. • 1 medium onion
  4. • 4 carrots
  5. • 1/2 medium sized bag green beans
  6. • 1/2 medium sized bag pepper strips
  7. • 1 28oz can Crushed Tomato
  8. • 1/2 28oz can Tomato Puree
  9. • 4-5 tbsp chili powder
  10. • 2 tbsp cumin
  11. • 1/2 tbsp thyme & Oregano
  12. • 1.5 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  13. • 1.5 tsp salt & crushed red pepper flakes, cracked pepper
  14. • 2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  1. 1.) Dig out the crockpot
  2. 2.) Chop up your onions and carrots {share a few pieces of carrots with the puppy or kids!}. I like bigger pieces in my chili but cut them to however you like it.
  3. 3.) Chop up your chicken, toss that in with the ground beef {this is where you’d add in steak or sausages if you wanted to}
  4. 4.) Layer on your frozen veggies.
  5. 5.) Spices go in next, then give it a mix, you want to coat the meat in the spices before the tomatoes go on!
  6. 6.) Now your tomatoes. I also took the can and rinsed it out {filled it like 1/4 the way up, to loosen the chili and get all the extra sauce out :) }
  7. 7.) One last stir, cover… let it go for as long as you can {On high 4 hour min. on low 6-8 hour min.}
Paleo On A Budget
You can serve with sliced avocado, homemade mayo on top, almond bread, or topped with a fried egg !
Also, if your day looks wicked busy, assemble it the night before and leave in the fridge, before you leave for work pop it on and you’re out the door


We're going to be the kind of friends who talk about food, saving money and awesomeness!

    This recipe looks so delicious!!! This might be a stupid question, but do I cook the chicken and ground beef before I put it in the crock pot?? I am thinking yes, but I know some recipes that you just throw in the raw chicken and it cooks it…….

      Heyy Emily! I actually toss everything in raw :) It cooks on low for 8 hours {or high for 4} so it’ll cook all the way through. If you’re not throwing it in the slow cooker, after you add your onions and carrots in, I’d cook them for a little bit {so your chicken is almost cooked all the way through} and then add everything else in and let it simmer for a 1/2 hour minimum :)

    Looks great. can’t wait to try it. One question: How many servings does the recipe as published above make? Thanks!

    • says

      Heyy Scott,
      I’d say it’ll make 4-6 servings. Depending on how big of eaters you have / if you do any sort of sides {like a salad} with it :)
