If you’re embarking on Whole30 challenge for the first time, this Crockpot Whole30 Chili recipe is the perfect addition to your meal plan! Simple, satisfying, and easy prep – perfect for a quick dinner and packing leftovers for lunch.
This chili is so good and seriously beyond easy to make. I’ve found that easy, make-ahead recipes like this one are key to any healthy eating plan/lifestyle. Planning and prepping ahead for the week is my secret weapon for staying on track. Every Saturday, I write down my menu and shopping list for the next week (seems if I write it down, I am much more likely to actually do it!) Then I spend a couple of hours on Sunday prepping a few meals and snacks for my family. For more info and ideas, check out this sample menu complete with grocery list and prep instructions: Sample Whole30 Menu.
I love all kinds of chili but I wasn’t so sure about a bean-less chili recipe…turns out, I didn’t miss the beans one bit! I adapted this recipe slightly from the Classic Chili recipe in the book, The Whole30: The 30 Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. I hope you enjoy!
