Paleo Chili

It was extremely cold over here in Florida today...well, in the high 40s at least at night time (yeah...I've lived in California and Florida my entire life..that's cold!)

Nothing is better on a cold night than warming up by the fire, drinking a cup of hot chocolate, and enjoying a nice hot soup for dinner. Unfortunately, I live in fireplace. Hot chocolate is not my favorite, unless made from scratch. So, I went for the hot soup.

As you know, the Fiance is still on his Paleo diet. But I really wanted to make a chili, so I made up a bean-less version of it! Now, this isn't spicy, I do no spice right now since I'm breastfeeding, but it was still delicious!

Paleo Chili
serves 6-8 


1lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2tbsp. butter
2tbsp. garlic, minced or powder
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 orange/yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 large sweet potato, chopped
4 tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
1 container chicken stock
1c. water
4tbsp. chili powder
4tsp. cinnamon
2tbsp. salt


1. In a large pot over medium heat, mix your tomato paste and chicken stock together, until smooth. Chop the tomatoes, and add to the pot. Set it to simmer.
2. In a large pan, melt your butter on medium-high heat, and sauté onion for a minute. Add ground turkey, and brown it. Once browned, add your turkey and onion to the pot, as well as the rest of your ingredients. Let simmer for at least 30 minutes. (The longer it cooks, the better the flavor).
