Low Carb Chili Recipe

Here is the recipe for the chili I made earlier in the week. My family loved it even though it had no beans.  Beans have too many carbs for me.

Major hint: don't forget the tomato paste! At first I didn't add it, and Patrick and I kept looking at it,  We were puzzled, because it didn't look like chili.  So I reread the recipe and Duh me! forgot the tomato paste. Please add the tomato paste!
