Pope Fitness: Easy No-Bean Chili


  • 1 Tbsp. ghee (organic grass-fed, if possible) 
  • 1 lb. raw 96% lean ground beef 
  • ¾ cup chopped onion (approx. 1 medium) 
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
  • 2 cups low-sodium organic chicken broth 
  • 2 cups all-natural tomato puree 
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder 
  • 1 tsp. ground smoked paprika 
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt) 
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper 
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder 


Heat ghee in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook, breaking apart with a spoon, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. 

Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Add broth, tomato puree, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; stir to combine. 

Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Gently boil, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until chili is slightly reduced and thickened.
