If you have trouble digesting beans or your dietary restrictions don’t allow them, then you’ll love this hearty bean-less version of my chili! (Click photo to enlarge.)

This recipe is also delicious served over your favorite noodles and/or topped with shredded cheese!

INGREDIENTS:
3 lb ground beef (grass-fed is best)
2 large onions, finely diced
2 green bell peppers, finely diced
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
2 large tomatoes, diced (optional)
9 cups water
3 (6oz.) cans tomato paste (choose brand that contains only “tomatoes”)
4 TBSP chili powder, to taste
2 tsp cumin, to taste
2 tsp sea salt, to taste
½ tsp black pepper, to taste
Garlic granules, to taste
Red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper, to taste (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
Sauté onion, peppers and beef in large pot until meat is browned and veggies are tender. Season to taste with sea salt, black pepper and garlic granules. Transfer to a large crock pot. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Simmer in crock pot on Low for about 8 -10 hours. If possible, taste a few times while it cooks and adjust seasonings to your taste. This recipe freezes well! It also tastes even better re-heated, so feel free to make in advance! (If you don’t have a crock pot, just simmer together in a large pot on the stove for at least one hour.)
