My Rating: 4/5

My Review: I really loved the flavor and abundance of veggies in this dish but, it tasted more like a meat sauce than a chili. It would be sickening to eat this without noodles so we added some. If the recipe had called for some type of grain on the side, I might have given it 5/5.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 1/2 cups onion, diced, about 1 large onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery, about 1 stalk
  • 1 1/2 cups carrots,peeled and diced, about 4 medium carrots
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 4 cups zucchinis, diced, about 2-3 medium zucchinis
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato puree or tomato sauce
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes

My Rating: 4/5

My Review: It was interesting to have shredded chicken in a stir-fry, I enjoyed it. The chicken was well-seasoned and there was a nice, simple flavor to the entire dish. I know it’s called “Chicken & Peppers” but, damn, it didn’t even call for onions??? We added them anyways and just like above, if the recipe itself had called for it, it would’ve gotten a 5/5. For our side: brown rice.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free tamari soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil for cooking with
