    This recipe came out great!! For the italian seasoning I used all fresh garden herbs and it intensified the flavors extremely well!  EXCELLENT recipe to make use of the last harvested tomatoes from the garden :)

    I just finished making this chili with a few reversions. I cooked the meat by its self and threw it in a pot with the rest of the ingredients minus the Italian seasoning and garlic. I thought the onion might lose too much flavor by cooking it twice. I added the Italian seasoning and garlic near the end as those ingredients tend to lose flavor quickly as well. It turned out delicious! I will be making this again and again for my family.

    I have just started the whole30 program and was wondering is this recipe is approved on whole30 ? It looks wonderful !!!!

      I would venture to say no Jennifer. Tomatoes are a nightshade and the beans usually are not Paleo friendly.
