LOL I could have done with this recipe about 3 hrs ago as I made chilli for tonight! Ah well I have it for next time!! 😉
can you make this in a crockpot? if so how long and at what temperature? Thanks 🙂
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 !!!!
Halle Cottis says
I would venture to say no Jennifer. Tomatoes are a nightshade and the beans usually are not Paleo friendly.

I made this but doubled it and did 1lb ground beef/1 lb sweet Italian sausage and did 1 can black beans/1 lb kidney beans. It came out great! Thank you!
This is a good idea but I added mint sauce taste great.
This was by far one of the most delicious chilies that I have made! Hubby says ‘it’s a keeper’ (and that’s saying something ?)
This recipe was wonderful. I followed it nearly exactly. I did add some hot peppers from my garden I needed to use. I will use this recipe every time now for chili! So easy to make and the flavor was incredible.

I’ve made this twice now. Double the recipe each time because I have a bumper crop of garden tomatoes to use. It is very good. My husband loves it.
Quick, Easy, Yummy!
Delicious, we love all the organic ingredients you use. We went organic a few years ago due to medical reasons and the difference it has made is totally unbelievable. We buy all beef, pork poultry and eggs from an organic farmer. We can dry organic beans a veggies from garden! We are about a 95% organic household!
Yum, I haven’t tried sauteing the onions and garlic together with the meat before. We typically started with a tomato base and added to there. This was a very unique flavor.
