White Bean and Bacon Chili – Real and Nourishing

This hearty, delicious chili is perfect for the whole family and is grain and dairy free! It can easily be cooked in the slow cooker as well.




  1. Prepare beans in the traditional manner (Soak for 7-8 hours in a bowl of water with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar. Then, cook on the stove for 1-2 hours on medium heat.)
  2. Prepare 2 cups of bone broth using the instructions in the post.
  3. In a saucepan, cook the bacon or ground beef.
  4. In a large pot or a slow cooker, add all the tomatoes, bone broth, spices, onions, bell pepper, and beans and simmer on low for 30 mins to 1 hour. Or cook on low in a slow cooker for 4 hours.
  5. Add the garlic and lemon essential oil at the end (heat will destroy their nutritional properties), 30 minutes or so before serving.
