Here in the Midwest, summer seems to desperately be hanging on.  Temperatures have dropped a bit, but it’s still huuuumid.  And we know that nothing says fall like sweating in your leggings and scarf.

But I’ve basically decided that if I believe hard enough that it’s fall, fall will magically arrive in all it’s magical glory.  Sort of a “I think, therefore I am” thing.

Until then, I’m enjoying this Paleo, allergen friendly version of White Chicken Chili.  It’s perfect to whip up on a cool day (or one you believe should be cool), cuddle up on the couch, and watch some football.

  • 3 cloves of garic, minced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 red peppers, chopped
  • 1 (4 ounce) can green chilies
  • 12 jalapenos, seeded and chopped (optional)
  • 46 cups chicken broth (I always use more because of the flavor and nutrients.)
  • 2 teaspoons Pink Sea or Celtic salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 (14 oz) can full fat coconut milk
  • Choice of garnish- Avocaodo, sour cream and cheese for the Primal peeps, jalapenos, anything else that makes your heart happy


  1. In a soup pot, melt the coconut oil.
  2. Saute the onions until translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add celery and carrots. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Add red peppers, green chilies, and jalapenos. Cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Add chicken meat, chicken broth, and all spices. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes.
  7. 5 minutes before serving, add the coconut milk and sir. Don’t let the coconut milk come to a boil, or else you will lose the creamy consistency.
  8. Serve and garnish as you wish.
