Gluten-free Chili Mac
Gluten-free Chili Mac is a delicious dish that is quite simple to make. It may be made with or without dairy and just requires one pan!
Gluten-free Chili Mac Ingredients
- Coconut oil, two teaspoons
- 1 onion (finely diced)
- 4 garlic cloves (minced)
- 100 grams of ground beef (or any ground meat)
- quarter-cup tomato paste
- 14.5 ounces of tomatoes in cans (pureed or crushed; about 1 can)
- 2 cups beef broth and 2 tsp. oregano
- 10 grams of chili powder (or to taste)
- 2 1/2 cups elbow pasta free of gluten (uncooked)
- 1/2 cup preferred cheddar cheese made without dairy; omit for paleo. It seems like a good choice to use this DF Cheddar Powder.)
- Over medium heat, preheat a 10- to 12-inch skillet with a tight-fitting lid.
- Include the oil.
- Sauté the onions once they are added, about 3-5 minutes, until soft.
- Add the garlic and break up the ground meat by chopping it up and stirring it in.
- When cooked, include tomato glue, canned tomatoes, meat stock, oregano, and stew powder. Mix thoroughly.
- Incorporate the noodles. Reduce the heat to a simmer, then cover. Cook until the noodles are still somewhat firm, around 7-10 minutes. Don’t be concerned if the noodles appear thin at first because they will continue to absorb liquid as they sit.
- Melt the cheddar by stirring in the shreds.Garnish as desired before serving.
- You can learn how to get things started by reading my post on menu planning.
- Make a list of everything in your freezer, fridge, and pantry that needs to be used up.
- Choose your dishes. You should save recipes with lengthy cooking times or a lot of prep work for the weekend when you might have more time.
- Create a shopping list. Make a grocery list for each of the recipes you choose to ensure you have everything you need. As I referenced in my above menu-arranging post, I keep pre-printed staple records close by for this. The foods I require are arranged on my list in the order in which I purchased them at my preferred store, organized by type.
- Shop for groceries while carrying your list. STICK TO IT to ensure that you only purchase things you will use. Even with all the “bumps” that come with shopping with kids, we do this as a family. You might prefer to work on your own. I assign my older children tasks to assist in the process, and an organized list makes it easier to navigate the store.
- Take advantage of your newfound freedom and health! It feels far better to take care of your family well, and it is far from impossible and worth the effort. It’s also better for your body to have less stress, but I didn’t have to tell you that, did I?
