This Homemade Paleo Chili recipe is delectably flavored with oregano, cumin, basil, fresh tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, and garlic! It tastes incredible straight off the stove or the next day as leftovers! {Paleo}


  •  1 1/2 – 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 white or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 bell peppers (any color), diced
  • 45 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
  • 6 small tomatoes, diced
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Coarse black pepper for garnishing, optional
  • Fresh cilantro and diced avocado for garnishing, optional


  1. In a large sauté or rondeau pan, brown the ground beef. Drain the grease, if desired. Then add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Sauté until the onions turn translucent. Stir in the tomatoes and add the tomato sauce. Sprinkle in basil, oregano, cumin, and sea salt.
  2. Simmer covered for at least 20 minutes on a MEDIUM heat, or on a LOW heat for up to one hour. Remove from heat and let cool enough to serve. Garnish with coarse black pepper.
  3. Refrigerate leftovers for about 2-3 days.


You’ll notice in our recipe, we don’t add chili powder or cayenne pepper. That’s for our family’s dietary needs. You can certainly add those spices to your chili, if you’d like. Either reduce the amount of the other spices a little to make room for chili powder and cayenne pepper, OR simply add these seasonings on top of what is already included.
