I need to tell you about something that’s pretty much the greatest thing to happen to me since paleo brownies. Speaking of brownies, I might be making some this week for you. Just for you, definitely not for me. Anywho, I went to the gym the other day, and when I came out, my car was on. But I had my keys in my hand. I was confused. Like, uber confused. It wasn’t until I was handed to new remote starter to my car that I actually understood what was happening. I got an early Christmas present!! Since it’s been so freezing cold here, my car got a little helpful boost added to it while I was gone. So now, when I work the early shifts at the gym, I can start my car from bed and my butt will be warm as soon as I sit down. Paleo brownies and a warm car at 6am? HELL YES. This year can’t get any better.

I seriously love the movie Avatar. I’m guessing I’ve talked about this at least 4 times on my blog before, but whenever I get to see it again, I get so excited. It’s 1 of 2 movies I own. Avatar and The Breakfast Club. Makes sense. Both movies I cry in. For different reasons. But the Pandora’s world strikes more closely to my heart. Mostly because I want to live there and this world seems excessively boring when you watch that movie.

Speaking of another world, I’ve been remembering my dreams a lot lately. I wake up in the middle of the night, then once I fall back asleep, I have crazy dreams. Remember my dream about creepy people? Well, that one is still the worst. By far. But the other day, I had a dream about alligators. Or maybe it was a crocodile. I don’t really know the difference. I think alligators are smaller. So it was an alligator. Anywho, I was being chased by an alligator and what did I do? I jumped in a pool. THE ONE THING YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSE TO DO, I did. How childish of me. My dreams are childish. Anyways, when I woke up, the covers were all over the place, and my heart was racing. I’m guessing I was sweating too, mostly because I’m just a sweaty person. Does it count as exercise if your heart rate is elevated and you’re pitting out? I’m countin’ it.

I think I have poor circulation in my feet. They are ALWAYS cold. Socks on, socks off, shoes on, shoes off, fur boots on, fur boots off. I need heated socks for this winter.

    Holy heck… While his is good it was waaaaaay spicer than I was ready for. Should’ve read a few comments before I dumped in all the spice. And I didn’t even add hot sauce. Juli how do I tame it down? Water? Tomato sauce? Help me tame the beast of this chili!

    Thank you”

    1. juli says:

      I’d try tomato sauce or diced tomatoes (not fire roasted). You could also add some cooked, cubed sweet potatoes to help balance it out.

    Okay well I’m borderline obsessed with you and your recipes, but I think I need to finally learn my lesson that you have a waaaayyyy spicier palate than my boyfriend and me! hahaha. I read some comments and I left out the red pepper flakes (mostly because I didn’t have any) and added extra garlic and some onion powder, thinking we’d be fine.

    Holy mouth on fire!It was freaking delicious though, so we started dumping coconut sugar in to even it out so that we could power through. 😀 Definitely making this again and just taking it a bit easy with the spices. It was so freakin easy and had amazing flavor.

    Thank you so much for all you do!

    Hey there!

    Could this go longer than 10 hours and be ok??

    I’ve had this epic recipe before but want to see if it’s ok to let it go longer?

    Let me know!


    1. juli says:

      you can try it but it may get a bit dry with that long of a time frame

    I didn’t have any pork on hand, so I’m making this with a three-pound moose loin that my brother the hunter gave me. I used the exact amount of spice…I’m thinking the extra pound of meat will probably keep it from being too hot. I feel sad for my husband who is vegan. 🙂

    I dont usually leave reviews but this chili is amazing. We add extra cayenne and it is so spicy and filling and perfect. I made it for work for a chili cookoff (credited your website and handed out recipes of course! hopefully you got some new traffic) and it won. We were discussing buying a bigger crockpot so we can make it in larger quantities lol. Thank you!
