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!”
