Taco Chili

With the colder temperatures, my tummy and body have been craving warmer and heartier foods. I had these ingredients in my pantry and fridge, tossed them together and was very pleasantly surprised. I've made it two more times since. The leftovers heat up great! image1


1 lb grass fed organic ground beef

1 tbsp of coconut oil (or your preferred cooking oil)

i sweet onion, chopped

1 tbsp minced garlic

Dash of red pepper flakes (optional)

1 sweet potato, peeled and diced into bite size pieces

2 zucchini, halved and diced

1 15oz organic can of 3 bean medley (kidney, pinto, black)

1 packet of organic natural taco seasoning (you are welcome to make your own but I was being super quick/lazy)

Salt and pepper to taste


- Heat coconut oil in a large saute pan over medium-low heat

- Add onions, garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir frequenty

- Once onions start to be come softer, add the sweet potato and mix well. Turn up heat of stove to medium

- Put zucchini in pan and combine all ingredients well. Next place pan lid on top and let veggies cook

- Meanwhile, in a separate pan, brown the ground beef

- When beef is done and veggies are cooked through, mix beef into veggie pan

- Add beans and taco seasoning, mix well. Place lid on top and let simmer for 2-5 minutes stirring as needed

Easy-peasy, healthy AND delicious! Enjoy!
