Clean Sweep of the Week! Low Carb Chili

I need to warm up!

And is there really any better way to do that other than a nice bowl of chili!

I am taking a page from my old book here and brining you this low carb chili.

May I suggest serving it with my low carb cornbread?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef, ground chicken or turkey ( I used grass fed beef)
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 1 can (6 oz.) no salt added tomato paste
  • 4 cups water (or chicken broth)
  • 1 heaping tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • couple easy shakes of nutmeg
  • 2 heaping tbsp of minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp oat flour
  1. brown meat and drain off fat, rinse well.
  2. while the meat is draining, add the water and tomato paste together in a medium saucepan, let it start to cook
  3. chop your onion and mix all your spices in a small bowl
  4. add the Worcestershire sauce, onion and spice mix to the water/tomato paste base and bring to a boil
  5. Add the oatmeal and bring to a rapid boil and then turn off heat
  6. add the meat and sauce to a large crockpot and set on high for one hour, then turn heat to low for 2-3 hours (or until your ready to eat).
  7. Top with some shredded cheese and enjoy!
