Paleo Beefy Chunky Chili

1 1/2 - 2 lbs lean ground turkey or beef
Optional- 1/2-1 pound ground turkey sausage
2 green bell peppers diced
1 yellow bell pepper diced
1 white or yellow onion diced
2, 14.5-15 oz cans organic no salt added tomato sauce (depending on how much meat or Optional salsa you use, you may need to add a little more sauce or a second can of tomatoes)
1, 14.5-15 oz can organic no salt added diced tomatoes
Optional- 1 cup medium salsa homemade or we like On the Boarder (lower sodium, very few ingredients)
2 Tbsp Chili Powder (I use closer to 3 Tbsp)
1 Tsp cumin (you can use more and adjust to preference, I use closer to 1 Tbsp)
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper (adjust to taste)
A few shakes of crushed red pepper

This recipe is very easy to adjust to spice preference either by adding more or less medium salsa,  crushed red pepper or chili powder.  A few dashes of hot sauce or cayenne pepper will kick the taste up.  If you do not follow Paleo just a low fat diet, a can of Rotel in place of the organic diced tomatoes or in addition is very good in this chili.

In a large sprayed skillet brown the meat, peppers and onion, drain
In a large sauce pan add the sauce, diced tomatoes and all of the spices.
Add the meat and stir well
Cover and simmer on medium low for about 15-20 minutes

This is great served with Paleo Almond Biscuits for dipping.  These can be found in my Paleo Sloppy Joes Recipe.
