In a large dutch oven or saucepot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and brown slightly, about 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until mostly browned, breaking up with a spatula occasionally.
Add peppers, onion, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, spices and worcestershire sauce, stir well until combined. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer covered for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve over cauliflower rice (or brown rice for Phase 4), or plain with a Tbsp of cheddar veggie shreds.
1 serving is appx 2 cups of chili, and would count for 8oz protein and 1 1/2 cups of veggie.
