Jeff’s Chili

I call this Jeff’s chili because even before my “paleo” days, I had to come up with this recipe because my husband HATES beans. And, of course, chili traditionally includes beans. He acts like a total baby if there’s a bean even touching anything he’s going to eat. Turned out working awesome for me because I can’t tolerate them anymore. Win-win. And you know what else is a win? This chili. I think I could seriously win a chili cook-off with this recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
