There’s nothing better on a cold winter day than a big pot of chili simmering on the stove. And truth be told, we eat this chili year round. Paul’s Veggie Loaded Chili is a healthy, sugar-free winner. It’s meaty, really savory and loaded with vegetables including carrots, onions and celery. Yes, I know it sounds weird. But trust me, it’s really really good.
Along with his perfect popcorn, Paul’s other go-to recipe is his chili. We like to make a big pot of this Veggie Loaded Chili on the weekends and then eat the leftovers for lunch during the week. It’s terrific on its own but it’s also delicious stuffed in a baked potato, or on top of a grass-fed hot dog.
We use a combination of ground chicken thighs and ground beef in this recipe but you can use all chicken or all beef if you prefer.
