Paleo Instant Pot Chilli Dog Bowls

I realized soon after I named this recipe that it sounds a little silly. I should probably clarify that this recipe is Chilli Dogs IN a bowl (rather than a bun), not dog bowls with Chilli in them. Anyway, don't let the name put you off, this is a DELICIOUS and cozy Fall recipe that can be made very simply your Instant Pot.

Made with grass-fed beef, organic vegetables, diced tomatoes and an array of spices, this comforting dish is both indulgent and healthy. It is packed with protein, healthy fats, and nutrients. With flu season coming up, I would increase the garlic and onion in here to pack in extra anti-viral and immune boosting properties.

This is the basic blueprint for these chilli bowls but as Max pointed out, there is so much you can add to this recipe to make it even more delicious. If you aren't dairy-free, top it with organic raw cheese or sour cream. If you fancy some crunch, add some tortilla chips. If you are looking for something more hearty and less traditional, consider adding chopped zucchini, kale and other veggies for extra bulk and micronutrients. You can add beans, extra spice, even some rice- enjoy this Chilli however you want!
