Homemade Gluten Free Chili

Simple and Delicious

There is nothing like a nice warm bowl of chili. A little bit of heat, brimming with beef, beans and that deep chili flavor. Add a handful of shredded cheese, a bit of avocado, and some cilantro. It is pure heaven. Great for company, to take to a pot luck, or perhaps bring a pot to a family that has just moved or had a baby. It is great the day you make it, plus the leftovers are so versatile. Chili Dogs, Chili con Queso, Chili Nachos, Chili Quesadillas…and the list can go on. Homemade gluten free chili is a great meal to keep in your monthly meal planning rotation.

 Sure, you can by pre-made chili seasoning mix at the grocery store. There are quite a few gluten-free varieties on the market, but why do that when it is so easy to make? There is a good chance you already have the spices on hand! It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients to make this homemade gluten free chili and it is so much tastier, plus it avoids all of the extra additives and preservatives.

Homemade Gluten Free Chili

Personally, I love serving chili to a crowd. It is one of those dishes that you can throw together quickly and just let it simmer on the stove. I have never met anyone who does not like chili!  Another awesome thing about this chili is that, just like my Arroz con Pollo,  it freezes really well. I like to double the recipe and then freeze the leftovers to have on hand for quick lunches.

    I have to agree that there is nothing like a good bowl of homemade chili. I could eat it almost anytime and I love mine topped with avocado also. Looks great 🙂

    I make vegetarian chilli a lot and we call it rajma. But I Have been thinking about adding minced turkey in my chillies. Your version looks good.
