Paleo Pumpkin Chili

This paleo pumpkin chili is the perfect warm and cozy dish for fall! It’s whole30 compliant and is easy to make AIP and nightshade free.


Chili is such a hearty and flavorful comfort food and one that I didn’t want to accept never eating again. But, how do you have chili without tomatoes, red spices, cheese, and beans? Aren’t those the main ingredients? This paleo pumpkin chili is AIP, whole30, and has all of the cozy fall flavors you love without the nightshades, dairy, or legumes!


We’ve turned pumpkin recipes into an ultra sweet and sugary treats, but really pumpkin is still a vegetable and tastes great in savory recipes. What’s great about pumpkin chili is that it’s not expected to be super spicy and full of tomatoes, which makes it a natural choice for nightshade free, AIP chili.
