Appreciate the gluten free aspect of this recipe BUT folks with MS should know that the beef and the jalapeƱos are both heat producing foods meaning they are not good for folks with Ms or any other inflammatory issues. Anything spicy, red and hot should be eaten with as much sensitivity as going outside when it's over 80 degrees F. This meal produces too much internal heat to be good of MS. Let's look at being even healthier in finding a cure for MS!

Caroline, thank you for your comment and sharing your thoughts on red meat and spicy foods for you and your MS. As you know everyone's case is completely different. If your body does not respond well to spicy foods or red meat, then yes this recipe is definitely not for you. I try to include recipes for all types of MS sufferers, while never including dairy, legumes, or gluten.

I have found from years of my own research that spicy foods and red meat does not affect me and my MS. Actually, I have found that eating for your blood-type is more important than eliminating certain types of foods for all people. For me red meat and spicy foods are actually good for my blood type. For me legumes, dairy, and gluten are foods I completely steer away from.

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts. It's important we all learn from one another, especially when it comes to food and our diet.

I just wanted to let you know that this recipe is being used frequently. I have shared it with many people! I have been using this recipe for 2 years now, I went paleo and it has helped my MS a ton (dx in 2004). My husband and I absolutely love this recipe. The only difference is that we add an extra can of stewed tomatoes. We also use this homemade chili seasoning recipe to avoid any preservatives:
*we add 1 tbsp chili powder.
And we make sure to use grass fed beef and that the organic stewed tomatoes come in a non-bpa lined can.
Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Jodie - great suggestions and additions to the recipe!

I too have been Paleo for the past 4 months and doing amazing. I was not Paleo when I wrote my book, just gluten free, dairy free, and legume free... but now I've stepped it up and never best better :)

Thanks again for sharing!
