Paleo Dinner: Spicy Meaty Chili

It's a rainy, chilly day in Southern California.  This is a perfect day for a big pot of spicy chili to warm the bones.

Rainy Day Paleo Spicy Chili


2 lbs ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
1-28 oz. can whole tomatoes with juice, slightly chop tomatoes with kitchen shears before adding
2- 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1- 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with jalapenos and chile peppers
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons Emeril's Baby Bam (see recipe following)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Brown ground beef.  Drain off fat.  Add garlic, onion, green pepper, and onion. Cook for a few minutes until vegetables are slightly softened.  Add tomatoes and seasonings.    Stir well and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally so tomatoes don't stick to bottom of pan.  Enjoy!

Hearty!  Meaty!  Paleo!  Yum!
