Paleo & Whole30 Sweet Potato Chili

October 19, 2018

Hi Ya'll, happy Friday! Todays post is about my famous Paleo Chili Stew - I love chili but it can be so heavy and full of sugar that I had to modify it for my liking. This is actually the first paleo recipes I ever created and is now a staple in my fall/winter diet. Anyone that knows me will say I cook healthy, and affordable meals and this one cost me less than $30, and can be consumed for the whole week! 

Nothing is better than Fall recipes to set the mood for cozy. I mean this weekend is going to be kicked off with some warm chili soup, a snugly blanket, and my bed. Did you know staying in on a Friday night is the new going out?! I can jump on that bandwagon, hah!

Paleo & Whole30 Sweet Potato Chili

Indulge yourself in a bowl of Paleo Sweet Potato Chili that is slightly spicy (I like it with a hint of kick!) and full of beef. It’s the perfect combination of thickness and sweetness that won't leave you feeling overstuffed all the while being grain free, sugar free and dairy free! 

2 lbs hamburger
1 red onion chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 can tomato sauce 29.5 ounces
2 cups petite diced tomatoes with juice
3 cups beef stock (I used chicken because I had it leftover)
1 cup carrots sliced
5 cups sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 cup chili powder
dash of oregano
dash of red pepper flakes

Slow Cooker Instructions: 
Brown the ground beef, onions, and garlic and then drain off the fat and place it into the slow cooker. Add all other ingredients and let it simmer on low all day for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.

Stove top Instructions:
In a large saucepan, brown hamburger, onions and garlic. Drain off the fat. 

Add the remaining ingredients to the saucepan. Mix well, bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for about 30-40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes and carrots are cooked through.

Remove and discard the bay leaves. Then serve!

  1. One meal I’ve been making for a long time is burrito pie. Brown 1/2 lb beef or turkey. Add in 1/2 can refried beans, small can green chilies and 1/2 cup salsa. Fry or blister on the stove top 4 tortillas (middle sized). On a baking sheet, lay down 1 tortilla, 1/3 of meat mixture, shredded cheese and then top with another tortilla. Repeat and end with a tortilla topped with cheese. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes. Serve with taco fixings - salsa, sour cream, avocado and lettuce. Reheats really well and has been a hit with everyone. I’m actually making this today!
