30 Minute Chili Recipe

This 30 minute chili recipe is a super delicious way to get some nutrient-dense liver and seaweed into your diet without tasting it!

This recipe has been on our weekly menu plan since July, and it’s always a crowd-pleaser. This chili is light and fresh tasting because I use tomatoes from the garden, a jar or a tetrapak instead of from a toxic, BPA-lined aluminum can.

This chili is also a great way to use up some ground meat or leftover beans, and to get some nutrient-dense liver, bone broth, and seaweed into your diet without tasting it! (You can leave out the beans if you are on GAPS or Paleo.)

But perhaps the best part of this recipe is that if you use pre-prepared beans and tomatoes, it only takes about 30 minutes to make.

For a nutrient-dense, real food meal, that’s awesome!
