A chili like this is the perfect one to make if you have family members who do not want to eat according to the paleo guidelines.

You can make a batch of this chili and once it is finished, ladle your serving into a bowl and set it aside. Then you can simply add in a can of rinsed and drained kidney or black beans and simmer the chili until it is heated through.

That gives you the amazing chili that you will love and also give your family the “beany” chili they are accustomed to. It’s a “win-win!”

Though I must say, once they get a bite of this chili, they are going to realize that they aren’t missing out on anything at all. This chili has flavor to spare.

Note: If you make this recipe with turkey (or beef) bacon to be biblically clean like I now do, you may need to add additional oil/fat as alternative bacons are very lean. See this recipe at Wholesome Skillet: How to Make Crispy Turkey Bacon

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork
