Paleo Cowboy Chili

My Paleo Cowboy Chili is the perfect one pot meal for chilly Fall days and so much more!


Last night I posted a photo of a recipe I’ve been working on for Creamy Enchilada Soup, which turned out to be more delicious than I could have imagined. And when I posted my photo, I apparently got people really excited. And then I started feeling bad that I can’t share the recipe yet. Wah wah. So this recipe, for my Paleo Cowboy Chili, from Paleo Cooking with Your Instant Pot [3], which until now has remained in the book only.


But for all intents and purposes, we’ll just call it a consolation prize for my teaser last night. It’s one of my most popular recipes in the book and it really is my go-to chili recipe during the cooler months. So while I still can’t share my enchilada soup recipe, please accept this as a token of meaty love while you await what’s up ahead. After all, I just want to be able to sleep at night and I surely can’t without your love and forgiveness. Mkay?!
