This chili recipe is thick and savory, perfect for a cold winter's night. It is grain, sugar, and dairy-free and has the perfect balance of both spicy and sweet. You can definitely adjust the spiciness level, so don't write this off if you aren't a spicy person! (See ingredient list below.) It is also made from all clean ingredients and is completely Paleo.
This makes a lot, so I often freeze half and save for a night when I don't feel like cooking. Enjoy!
2 lbs ground beef (I use 93/7 lean ground beef)
1 red onion, diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 can tomato sauce, 29.5 oz

3 c beef stock
1 c carrots, sliced
5 c sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp thyme
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 c chili powder (use less if you don't like it spicy)
dash of oregano
dash of red pepper flakes (eliminate if you don't like it spicy)
In a large sauce pan, brown ground beef, onion, and garlic. Drain off the fat.
Place ground beef in the crockpot and add all other ingredients on top.
