  • 2 tbsp cooking fat of choice (coconut oil, ghee, bacon fat are all great options)
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 cups bone broth (or chicken broth or beef broth)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 5 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 celery stalks, chopped
  • 5 carrots, chopped
  • 3 sweet bell peppers, chopped (I used one yellow, one orange and one red)
  • 1 tbsp organic cacao powder (omit for SCD)
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (use pure chili powder, not a mixed spice chili powder)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Place a medium sized pan on the stove on medium heat and add the cooking fat and allow to melt.

  2. Add the ground beef to the pan and cook until browned, breaking the meat apart as it cooks.

  3. While the beef is cooking chop the vegetables and add all the other ingredients into your slow cooker.

  4. Transfer the beef to the slow cooker and mix all the ingredients well.

  5. Cook on low heat for 8 hours.

  6. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  1. If you find this a little spicy simply add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of full fat coconut milk (as needed based on your tolerance).
  2. Optional topping ideas: Chopped avocado and cilantro.
  3. Store this chili in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
