Make-It-Your-Own Beanless Chili

January 7, 2014

Author Notes:

This is a new take on chili as it does not contain beans. Gasp! It still has the hearty elements, familiar ingredients, and chili-spice flavor of the traditional version. For a more modern twist, we recommend serving over cauliflower rice or sweet potato. Top it with your garnishes of choice. We like it spicy!


Serves: 4


  • 1-1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 28 ounces stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 4 ounces canned, chopped green chiles
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Toppings of choice: shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, sliced green onions, and jalapenos slices.
