Smoky BBQ Paleo Ground Beef Chili Con Carne – a gluten free, dairy free paleo chili with a smoky BBQ flare. Give your favourite comfort food a delightful twist with this home-cooked meal.Jump to Recipe
A chili is probably one of the top 10 fall/winter comfort foods. I want to say top 5 but then I remember some people will eat pizza in any type of weather lol! There are so many chili recipes on Google and even a heap more PALEO chilli recipes but they all seem to be the same thing. Well, mine’s just a little bit different because BBQ’S are still on my mind.
This Smoky BBQ Paleo Ground Beef Chili Con Carne is just that. A paleo chili with some smoky BBQ sauce. Nothing too fancy but all the more delicious and delightfully different to the norm. Sometimes, it’s good to give your favourite things a little twist, right?
I use my easy and deliciously smoky no cook paleo BBQ sauce and I actually mix it into the paleo chili (guess it’s “cooked” in this case lol).
Sweet potatoes or even some pumpkin will add a nice creamy touch to the chilli while the avocado just tops the whole dish off.
