The paleo diet is a diet consisting of foods that cavemen could eat essentially. That means anything you could hunt, grow, etc. The paleo community is split on dairy. Some paleo enthusiasts are very against it and others accept some dairy. No matter your stance you can make this recipe without topping it with greek yogurt as I did. While I am not on the paleo diet, I do enjoy paleo recipes as they are made with clean ingredients and lack any processed foods. So whether you are on the paleo diet or are just trying to eat healthier, this paleo buffalo chicken chili recipe is for you!

This recipe consists of simply dumping the ingredients in a slow cooker and turning it to low. Now walk away for 8 hours and come back to a healthy, homemade dinner. Easy enough? Want to make it even easier? My go-to time saving helper in the kitchen is this handy little chopper. I seriously use it for everything from making fruit salsa to dicing all my veggies. It makes it go quick and helps me avoid the tears when dicing onions. Use it to dice the sweet potato, carrots, onions and celery quickly and easily!

  1. I’ve never seen white sweet potatoes in our markets but I will be on the lookout. This chili looks amazing and that fact that it’s a slow cooker recipe is an added bonus.

  2. Wow, those are some cold temperatures!! I’d need some warm comfort food like this chili, too! Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday last week.
