Primal Chili

When my mom used to make chili when I was young, I would pick out all of the meat and only eat the beans. Time has thrown those beans in the trash where they belong.

*Serves 2*

1 lb Ground Beef
1/2 Yellow onion
1 Can diced tomatoes
1 cup Fiesta blend shredded cheese (*Once again, I eat dairy. This ingredient is optional.)
1 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Chili powder
1/2 Tbsp Cumin
1 tsp Ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Garlic powder
2 tsp Cinnamon
Coarse salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, melt the butter. Chop the onions and add to the pot, stirring until clear. Add in the ground beef and continue to stir, breaking the beef into small pieces. Add all spices, then the can of chopped tomatoes. Allow to simmer for about three minutes, then stir in half of the cheese. Spoon into bowls. Top each bowl with the remaining cheese.
