The perfect chili is the recipe that everyone can eat and enjoy. Here are some tasty recipes that appeal to a wide range of dietary restrictions.
Make sure your garnishes and toppings are also gluten-free. In this case, maybe some gluten-free corn chips instead of the crackers pictured below.
Finding a gluten-free chili is relatively easy. (No thickening with flour!) Tracking down a gluten-free chili that's also vegan is a little trickier. This one gets the job done with beans -- baked beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, and a black bean soup -- combined with veggies and spices.
This one's paleo-friendly, so it doesn't shy away from the meat. It features ground bison and pork sausage. Coconut oil handles sautéing duties.
No Beef/No Tomato
Here's one for people who don't eat red meat. The plan calls for tan! It's a white chili with cooked chicken breasts, white beans, and Monterey Jack -- and maybe a little sour cream on top. It's ready in just 30 minutes.
Being from Texas doesn't really count as a dietary restriction. But don't try serving a Texan a bowl of chili with beans. This one is 100-percent Texan-friendly.
Making chili dairy-free is really about cutting out the cheese and sour cream garnishes.
