I wanted you to have a visual of what to look for when you’re buying gluten-free ingredients.
All but one of these products has “gluten free” labeled directly on their label. They do a great job and it makes my job at the grocery store so much easier! Thank you!
See that little bottle of McCormick’s Chili Powder….the one that doesn’t have a red circle showing off the wonderful “gluten free” label. In a situation like this, looking on the company’s website is the next best thing to see if it’s gluten free or not.
If you’re following Trim Healthy Mama, you know that you want to separate your carbs (E meals) and fats (S Meals) for your meals. When I use ground beef in an E meal (a meal that contains a healthy amount of carbs) I will rinse off the cooked beef with hot water to rinse off any extra fat. In the picture above I’m using hot water from my tea kettle to do the rinsing.
This is such an easy meal to put together and you could certainly use an Instant Pot to cook it in, but putting it in a big pot like this one and using my stovetop doesn’t take long at all. I usually brown the ground beef in my big 6-quart Lodge Dutch oven and then rinse it off, put it back in the pot with all the other ingredients and let it cook for about 20-25 minutes. Of course, you can let it simmer for much longer if you like, but after 20 or so minutes it’s ready. After browning the beef you could also put all the ingredients in a slow cooker for on low for 4 hours.
This makes a large pot of chili. This recipes makes an E meal for Trim Healthy Mamas, if you aren’t following THM rinsing the beef is optional.
Check all of your ingredients to make sure they are gluten-free.
2 lbs grass-fed beef, rinsed with hot water to remove excess fat.
2 cups chicken broth or beef broth
2 15 oz cans dark red kidney beans
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 15 oz can refried beans
1 24 oz jar Pace Picante sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
Brown the ground beef in a large dutch oven. Rinse the ground beef with hot water to remove excess fat.
Return beef to the dutch oven and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir occasionally as you bring it to a boil over medium-high heat and then turn down to low. This will be ready in about 20 minutes. You can let this simmer for much longer if you would like.
Slow cooker directions:
After browning and rinsing the beef, put all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
