Paleo (eating like our pre-agricultural revolution ancestors ate) chilli, is made without beans. In the west we typically include beans, but I think even non-paleo eaters will enjoy this deep smoky flavourful chili. This is best made a day ahead so the flavours can meld together. Serve with green onions and sour cream.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 dried chipotle pepper, stem removed
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chopped green capsicum
  • 1 cup chopped red capsicum
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g ground bison, or preferred red meat
  • 250g spicy ground pork sausage
  • 1 tablespoon chilli con carne blend
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (800g) tin crushed tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Soak chipotle pepper in boiling water until softened, about 10 minutes. Remove pepper from water and mince.
  2. Melt coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, green capsicum and red capsicum until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir garlic and minced chipotle into onion mixture and cook until fragrant; about 1 minute.
  3. Stir bison and sausage into onion mixture. Cook and stir until meat is browned and crumbly; 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Stir chilli powder, cumin, oregano, cocoa powder, and Worcestershire sauce into the bison mixture; add crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper then stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until flavours are blended; 10 minutes.
