This Paleo Beef Chili Casserole is a breeze to whip up! The whole family will love this flavorful, healthy dish.
My epic West coast trip continues! Now I’m writing to you from a Starbucks right by LAX doing a little work and a little waiting for Juli Bauer‘s plane to land! The last 24 hours have been a wild ride. I got to play with 6 fluffy Great Pyrenees puppies over on the Primal Pastures farm; enjoy the tastiest honey lavender goats milk latte at The Press Espresso in Temecula, CA with Kelly Brozyna (her Cookie Club sounds AMAZING); craft the 1st prototype for the collaborative skincare product I’m working on with Primally Pure (my skin LOVES it and I can’t wait to share more); and then drive to Malibu to attend a fun Expo West kickoff party hosted by Mark Sisson at his home. I’m being joined by Juli and Vanessa Barajas for this 3rd leg of the trip as we take on the massive Expo West! I’m so excited and have no idea what to expect. I’m imagining lots of samples and getting inspired by the healthy product movement! As always, you can follow the action over on social media!
NOW, let’s talk about this casserole. You guys know how much I love casseroles. I have an entire chapter dedicated to the food group in my ‘Fed & Fit’ book! I think they’re a fantastic way to get flavorful, filing, healthy, batch cook-friendly food on the table. TODAY’s casserole combines a recipe for killer beef chili with the fluffiest mashed potatoes.
The idea for this recipe came to me when my latest Butcher Box was delivered! I LOVE Butcher Box because it makes getting healthy, grass-fed proteins on my table a BREEZE. Each month, they send me a mixture of proteins (of my choosing) that can include 100% grass-fed beef, organic chicken, and heritage pork (the bacon is the BOMB).
I got several pounds of their awesome grass-fed ground beef in my last batch and knew I wanted to use it to make chili. The classic chili is poured over fluffy mashed potatoes and then baked to bring the flavors together. Serve with your favorite chili toppings and enjoy!
