Gourmet Gluten Free Chili Recipe with Bacon

Gluten Free Chili with Tomato Paste

I hadn’t made chili with tomatoes for my husband in over a decade. Last weekend I was cleaning out our freezer and found a little tomato paste. So, I decided to use it in some chili for him. He enjoyed this recipe so much, I had to share it with it you. However, to be honest, he loves all of my gluten free chili recipes, which most are tomato-free. The bacon is not really noticeable as far as flavor goes, though it add plenty of flavor. If you haven’t ever made a chili recipe with bacon, now’s your chance. Enjoy!

Creamy Saucy Gluten Free Black Bean Chicken Chili

I have to say, this is the best chili I have ever eaten! It reminds me of ham and beans, made with fresh ham. It is very flavorful, and is made without chili powder and without tomatoes. Due to the amount of cumin it is on the mild spicy side. To make it kid-friendly, cut back on the cumin, and add additional salt. You can easily make this black bean chicken chili organic by using all organic produce and free-range or organic chicken. Continue reading “Creamy Saucy Gluten Free Black Bean Chicken Chili”

Chocolate Chili with Bacon (Gluten Free)

Gluten Free Chocolate Chili

You heard it right, chocolate chili! I also threw in some bacon. I love to keep my guests guessing what the ingredients are in this chili. My daughter made a similar chocolate chili recipe, and she won an award for it. Unfortunately, for me, it contained tomatoes. Being allergic to tomatoes, I created my own chocolate chili recipe, gluten-free of course. You can top this chili¬†with cheese and/or gluten free bacon bits. I over cook some bacon to garnish the top and then add additional juice from the chili on top. It gives it a nice sheen, yet leaves the crunch for added texture. This is yet another one of my no tomato chili recipes. Enjoy! Continue reading “Chocolate Chili with Bacon (Gluten Free)”

Gluten-Free Chili Without Beans and Tomatoes

No Bean No Tomato Chili

As most of you know most of my gluten-free recipes are made without tomatoes due to food allergies. This one is no different. I tried to make this chili recipe more on the milder side so that it is kid friendly. If making it for children, only use half the amount of¬†cayenne or leave it out all together. You can substitute the little sugar for anything sweet: agave, molasses, etc. I have made a similar recipe before, but it contained red and green bell peppers; and another with meat and green chile. If you have tomato allergies or just watching the carbs this recipe is for you! This one is wonderful when used for chili cheese fries!

Gluten Free Beef Stew Chili

Gluten Free Chili Beef Stew

This gluten free beef stew recipe is actually another one of my gluten free¬†chili recipes without tomatoes, (due to my allergies). Some assume chili is naturally gluten-free, but if you use a package chili mix it may very well contain wheat gluten. This chili recipe is thickened with potato starch, though you may use cornstarch, if that is all you have on hand. You may also add tomatoes to this recipe, if you wish, which will sweeten it up a bit, or you can sweeten it with sugar, agave nectar, stevia or a combination of any of these. It is wonderful over baked french fries, which is how I used it, or you can top it over baked potatoes or rice. It is only a tad spicy, so if you like it hot, spice it up a bit more using additional cumin and chili powder. The worcestershire¬†sauce gives it more a beef stew flavor, therefore, if you desire more a chili flavor, just skip it or add more chili powder. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Beef Stew Chili”

Gluten Free Chili Recipe Without Tomatoes

This gluten free chili recipe is made without tomatoes. I taste-tested this recipe so much I didn’t even need lunch, it was that good! You don’t need to cover this up with cheese and onions, but by all means, enjoy! It naturally thickened without the use of flour, but you can make it as thin or as thick as you wish. I wanted a thick chili today for use in my chili lasagna recipe. I will post that recipe in the next couple of days. In deciding what ingredients to use in this gluten free chili recipe, I considered some of the ingredients of my daughter’s award winning chili recipe, chocolate and bacon, but decided to go on the healthier side with lots of peppers, onion, green chiles and lean ground beef. It did the trick! I hope you enjoy this gluten free chili recipe as much as we have. Continue reading “Gluten Free Chili Recipe Without Tomatoes”
