Paleo Turkey Chili

My favorite part of Halloween is probably the annual “make-the-face-of-your-pumpkin” photo. That never gets old.

What does get old? The heat.

I know, we choose to live here, but can’t I just wear a scarf once in the month of October? No? Ok fine. I’ll just take my whiny self into the air-conditioned house and curl up with a nice bowl of chili.

This chili is incredible, and so worth the morning prep time to have it waiting for you when you get home from trick-or-treating. If you live somewhere cold, this will warm you up perfectly. If you live in Phoenix, well, crank up the A/C. It’s worth it.
