This Whole30 Sweet Potato Beef Chili is paleo, hearty, comforting and healthy. Full of protein and fiber, this chili is the perfect fall
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 45 minutes
1 1/2 pounds 85% grass-fed ground beef
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 leek, diced (white and light green parts only)
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and large diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups beef bone broth
2 14.5-ounce cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 cup tomato sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Avocado, chopped cilantro, and pepperoncinis
1. Heat the olive oil in a deep stock pot or dutch oven, and add the ground beef and red onion when hot. Season with sea salt and pepper. Crumble the beef with a wooden spoon and cook until evenly browned. Add the carrots, bell pepper, leek, sweet potatoes, and garlic to the pot. Cook until the vegetables are starting to soften, about 5 minutes.
2. To the beef mixture, stir in the tomato paste and all of the seasonings. Cook one minute.
3 Add in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and bone broth. Bring to a simmer.
4. Cover the chili and let simmer for 30 minutes. You can uncover it after about 20 minutes to let some of the liquid reduce for a thicker chili. Discard the bay leaves before serving. Serve topped with sliced avocado, pepperoncinis, and chopped fresh cilantro.
