When you make this paleo whole30 chili, get real excited!

This paleo whole30 chili has been a long time coming. This is literally the first recipe I ever compiled, but I never had the opportunity to photograph it with anything but a camera phone.

I made this recipe over four years ago and at the time, all I had was my cell phone to take photos. Since then, I have remade it umpteen times but it never lasted long enough in the refrigerator for me to do so.

I actually remade it two years ago. This would be my second time retaking photos. So much excitement.

I know it’s almost summer, but I couldn’t resist. I can assure you that it will be worth turning your stove on. Besides, before we know it, it will be fall again and this recipe will be right at your fingertips 😉

A paleo chili with secret ingredients

The secret to this chili recipe is the cinnamon and cold brew coffee inside. Just wait until you try it!

In fact, if you share it with others, I guarantee they’ll be asking why it tastes so much better than any other chili they’ve had.

I can’t wait to hear your feedback on this recipe. I used a whole mess of ingredients, but it turned out very well.

You can use ground beef, ground turkey or whatever you would like. I stuck with the beef this time around because it makes my tummy happy.

More like this:

10 Minute Whole30 Curry

Whole30 Fish Taco Bowls

Whole30 Egg Roll in a Bowl

When you mix quality, grass-fed ground beef into this paleo chili, the results are AMAZING!

I’ve been very lucky to partner with an incredible company from my hometown Chicago: PRE Brands for this recipe. They carry grass-fed beef products that are of impeccable quality and do NOT break the bank.

Did you hear me? They are AFFORDABLE! I started jumping for joy when I found out about this company through a friend.

Just a few weeks back, I used their beef to make these Whole30 Lettuce Wraps… and they turned out absolutely divine. The same can be said about this chili!

They have an array of different beef products, ranging from THREE different types of grass-fed ground beef, to steaks and burger patties… woo!

You can order their beef on Amazon Fresh or pick it up at a local store if you’re lucky enough… just use their store locator!

This week has been pretty stressful. I got sick about a week ago for the first time in over five years, and I absolutely could not cook. I felt super grateful to have found leftovers of paleo whole30 chili in our freezer.

I forgot how absolutely draining the process of being sick can be. I feel like it made me a bit depressed actually.

I’m used to being able to do whatever I want everyday. I get to be creative. I get to work with my favorite brands.

I get to make delicious food and taste it. I didn’t get to do that for a week, and it really got to me. Is that insane?

Be sure to add this fabulous recipe for paleo whole30 chili to the rotation. I love me one pot meals as much as the next person, but there is something about this chili (ahem, probably that cinnamon and coffee) that really tickles my fancy.

By the way, I would let this bad boy simmer for at least 2-3 hours. The longer you let it simmer, the more delicious and GLORIOUS it becomes, I swear.

    I would imagine you could also make this in a slow cooker, no?? Looks fantastic!

    Hi! I’m just starting the Whole30 but live in the UK so can’t get the specific bone broth you list. Any others you think I could use? Also, what sort of tomato sauce did you use here? Homemade I’m assuming as store bought always has added sugar…? Thanks! x

      Hi there! You can use any type of low sodium chicken broth/beef broth, too! As for the tomato sauce, I used a no sugar added canned tomato sauce… is that helpful?

    Just made this chili and it’s tasty but super spicy- not sure if it was because we used ancho chili powder instead of regul chili powder- but I’d start with maybe half of the chili powder and see how you like the heat once you’ve done some simmering. Pretty tasty aside from the burning lips.

      Hi Becky, Thanks so much for letting me know. Sometimes, I forget that my heat preference is quite a bit higher than most peoples’. I will edit this right now… thanks so much again for your suggestion! Enjoy 🙂

    I thought that you could not have cheese on this particular diet? I’m going to try the chili for sure tomorrow. What are your thoughts on cheese. I cannot find this in the book

    1. The Movement Menu

      Hi there. Yes, cheese is not permitted on Whole30…! Why do you think there is cheese in the recipe?

    I adjusted to 25 servings, but how many ozs are you considering a serving here?

    1. The Movement Menu

      August 12, 2017 at 2:11 pm

      Hi there. I’m not totally sure how many ounces exactly. I adjusted the serving sizes based on what makes me feel full. Since there are 2 pounds ground beef, I made each serving have about 1/4 pound of beef. Does that make sense?

      1. Dan

        August 12, 2017 at 2:15 pm

        If you increase the coffee and broth by 50%, it comes out to 12 oz a serving. I also added more pepper and used poblano along with bells.

          How is it? That sounds wonderful!!!! If you liked the recipe, can you do me a favor and rate it (using the 1-5 star rating system towards the bottom of the recipe post)? That helps me out a ton! 🙂 Your modifications sound wonderful!

    Probably because in step #4 it says to sprinkle cheese on top. I wondered the same thing.

    1. The Movement Menu

      September 24, 2017 at 2:03 pm

      Sorry about that! The cheese is personal preference. If you’re Whole30ing, obviously not but I had revised and rephotographed this chili recipe from years ago, and I totally forgot to remove the step about the cheese. Thank you for letting me know!!!

    How would you cook this in the Instant Pot?

    1. The Movement Menu

      October 11, 2017 at 8:57 pm

      Hi there! If you were to use an Instant Pot, you should be able to make it the same way. I’d saute your ground beef until cooked through in a skillet and then saute the veggies in the Instant Pot. I know there is a saute function on the Instant Pot. I’d probably cook it on the meat / stew option, which I think is automatically set to 35 minutes. Release the pressure an voila!

    Hi. My hubby and I are doing our fist whole 30. I made this last night so he can top sweet potatoes with it for lunches this week. I at first reduced the spices as i only had 3 fresh Roma tomatoes. I added a lot more steewed tomatoes to help make up for it and a sweet potatoe. I ommitted the broth as i didn’t have any. It was nice and thick, but needed more spice, so I added most of the rest of spice the recipe called for and it was good. I wanna try it next time with cold brew coffee, I used leftover dark brew.
    Thanks for something different, and a truly whole 30 recipe.

      Hi there!! Wow, these substitutions sound awesome. I cannot imagine having this without broth, it sounds like it would be quite thick and not stew like. I’m really happy to hear it worked out though. Please let me know if you try any other recipes… 🙂

    Can you substitute the coffee with something else, I can’t have coffee?

    Hi there! How long would you cook this in a slow cooker?

    1. The Movement Menu

      November 4, 2017 at 9:19 am

      Hi there. I’d probably do low and slow… try 8 hours? 🙂

    This was delicious!! I had to make a few changes to the recipe– Firstly, I didn’t have ghee, so I sauteed my veggies with olive oil instead of a butter substitute to keep it Whole30 compliant. Secondly, I only added one large yellow onion as opposed to 3, and that was good enough for me. Thirdly, they didn’t have compliant cold brew at my grocery store, so I used leftover coffee and added an extra ounce or two to make up for the different brewing process. Lastly, I made it in my crock pot since I didn’t have a large enough pot to cook it on the stove top. It turned out GREAT!! I was skeptical because of the cinnamon and coffee, but I love it. Great suggestion! I’ll definitely be making this again, maybe with some extra veggies like carrots and celery in there.

      Hi Jessica, wow that sounds delicious. I’m so happy to hear that you were able to improvise with what you had and that it turned out so well! 🙂 Enjoy!
