Red Bean Chili

OK I've been called weird many times for NOT liking chili! It's just truly NOT my thing...BUT! I am willing to try this recipe with Red Beans instead of Kidney beans! 

*Of course I will make substitutions!

Red Bean Chili

Easy Tex-Mex Favorite

Next time you’re looking for a zesty beef (ground turkey)-and-red bean chili recipe that doesn’t take all day, cook up this easy version of the tasty Tex-Mex favorite. Starring ground beef (turkey), tomato, bell pepper (red, yellow, or orange), and GOYA® Small Red Beans, it’s GOYA’s Red Bean Chili is perfectly spiced with a fragrant blend of chili powder and cumin. 30 Thirty minutes on the stove is all it takes for those mouthwatering flavors to come together. Top with grated cheese (Cabot - Naturally Lactose free) and cilantro for a hearty chili that will knock their socks off!
Serves 6
Prep time: 10 min.
Total time: 55 min.


1 tbsp. GOYA® Olive Oil
1/2 lb. ground beef (80% lean) (ground turkey)
2 tsp. GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper (I suggest you make your own *see earlier post for recipe if you are sensitive to additives, msg, gluten, soy, etc.)
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped (about ½ cup) (Use yellow, orange, or red if you have an autoimmune or inflammatory disorder. Green peppers cause inflammation)
1 tsp. GOYA® Minced Garlic or 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 can (16 oz.) whole peeled tomatoes (crushed tomatoes are easier for me)
1 can (15.5 oz.) GOYA® Small Red Beans
2 tbsp. GOYA® Tomato Paste
1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro


1.Heat oil in large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add beef (turkey); season with Adobo. Cook, breaking up meat with spoon, until browned, 7-10 minutes.
2.Add onions, peppers and garlic to pot; Cook until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
3.Stir in chili powder and cumin, cooking until fragrant, about 2 minutes more.
4.Stir in remaining ingredients, breaking up tomatoes with spoon. Bring liquid to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes break down, chili thickens and flavors come together, about 30 minutes. Serve warm.

Paleo Sour Cream

I have been searching for an alternative to sour cream for about 5 years! I'm so hoping this is the answer!...  Paleo Sour Cream Prep time:  5 mins          Cook time: 0 mins           Servings: 6
262 Votes Ingredients:- 1 can full fat coconut milk, left in the fridge overnight
- 1-2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
- 1/8 tsp. sea salt(kosher salt)

Equipment:- Can opener
- Kitchen spoon
- Medium sized bowl
- Citrus squeezer (if using lemon juice)
- Whisk

Directions:1. Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (or overnight). This will cause the cream to separate from the milk.
2. Open the can of coconut milk and scrape out the cream into a medium sized bowl. Hint: I always open the can from the bottom and pour the milk out into a separate container before scraping out the cream. You can use the saved milk for smoothies and other recipes.
3. Whisk the sea salt and the lemon juice or vinegar into the cream until well combined. Taste and add more lemon…

The Lil Chef and I do not care for ANY sort of stuffing. I like the idea of it. I happen to be on Pinterest scrolling as usual and I found a Lasagna Timpano Pin/Post (which I will be posting in the near future) that looked amazing! I followed the link and it took me to The Food In My Beard site. I decided to do some exploring and I found this!!!!! I had to comment and tell him he was a genius! This is allergy free and not mushy bread, cornbread, stovetop or whatever so The Lil Chef and I are actually willing to try this! I'm excited! I will not be able to make it this year but it's definitely on the list for next year. Hopefully this will be something I can add to my/our repertoire.
