When I think of comfort food my mind turns to chili. Chili is an incredibly versatile one pot dish. Pack in a thermos for a day trip, serve it to friends at a party or snuggle up and enjoy yourself while watching a movie. If you’re into sports, chili is right up there with nachos and pizza for essential game day eating. It feeds a large crowd for a reasonable price and provides excellent leftovers.
This chili is remarkably easy to make and can be cooked in a big batch. I think it’s perfectly balanced with just the right amount of spices, hearty chunks of meat, spiced tomato-y sauce and filling beans. If you’re looking for true Paleo version just forgo the beans and you’re set.
While it is sometimes considered a cold weather food, I enjoy chili year-round and you should to! It is one of my go-to meals for busy days because I can have a filling healthy meal that feeds my whole family (with leftovers) in about a half hour.
We are heading out with the kids today for skating lessons, followed by grocery shopping and then my husband’s soccer game. Can you guess what I’m throwing on to simplify dinner?
