Gluten free, Grain free chili

Colder temperatures mean more tea,snuggles, and most importantly... it's soup season!

Growing up, weekly soup night was HUGE so I'm going to take a stab at it as well and use the month of January to share some of my favorite soup recipes with you. Each Wednesday this month I'll post a new soup recipe so keep your eyes open, you won't want to miss out on this deliciousness!

Starting off our soup series is going to be a Southwest Chili (is chili really a soup? Yes, I consider it one). The recipe is made with a cut of meat that comes directly from the animals chest or breast, the brisket and will warm your insides right up during these cold winter days. 

Because I wanted to ensure that the brisket is cooked to perfection before using it as the main ingredient in the Southwestern Paleo Chili, I divided this recipe into 2 parts. So, here we go...
