I don’t believe chili should be classified as a fall food. Or even just a winter food. I crave chili even during the 100 degree Texas summers. They eat spicy Mexican food down here, why not a bowl of chili? Maybe I made the season classification up. After all, I am from Wisconsin – where it’s winter for 7 months out of the year.
Luckily, I’ve got a chili recipe that’s supremely easy, and doesn’t take long at all to make. Only four ingredients! I don’t mind making a meal for myself when I have to put zero effort into it. If no one else wants it, that means more for me! I’ve never really been good at sharing food anyway.
Another great part about this paleo chili recipe? It’s salt-free! And its gluten free. These things tend to happen naturally when you cook with whole foods! Well, I’m also making more of an effort to reduce or eliminate salt from my food.
This seasoning mix can be used for one whole batch of chili.
So… I guess technically there are a few more than four ingredients in this recipe since you make your own seasoning blend. But you can make it in a large batch, and just scoop it out when you’re ready to make this four ingredient chili on the next brisk (or humid?) day! The amount of seasoning used comes out to about 1/5 of a cup (10 teaspoons).
