A couple weeks back I asked you to film and share your favorite Primal Blueprint recipes for a chance to win $1500 in gift certificates to U.S. Wellness Meats. This particular contest has always been a 21-Day Challenge staple, but this year, I upped the ante on Instagram with videos limited to just a minute each. The response was nothing short of amazing, as you guys came through with a batch of truly top-notch entries!
It was tough, but the Worker Bees and I chose five finalists for you to vote on. After you do, I highly encourage you to cruise over to Instagram to check out all the entries!
While there can only be one winner, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone that took the time to submit a video. I hope you had as much fun making them as we had watching them!
Watch all the videos in the playlist below, then vote for your favorite in the poll at the bottom of the page.
Voting will close and a winner will be announced at 6 p.m. PST, Friday, January 27.
It was a close race, but the people have spoken! Congrats to Christian on snagging the win for his Primal Poke Bowl!

@marksdailyapple, #1MinPrimal, #paleo, #paleochili, #gamedaysnacks, @wildharmonyfarm, @nomnompaleo, @itsme_emcee 1.5 lbs sugar free chorizo sausage 2 strips of bacon 2 tbls lard or your fat of choice 1 onion, diced 2 poblano peppers, diced 1 yellow pepper, diced 1 red pepper, diced 4 anchovy fillets, minced 1 14 oz can, tomato paste 1 28 oz can, diced tomatoes 1 tsp chili powder 1 tsp paprika 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp pepper 1 tsp salt 1 tsp cocoa powder 1 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper 1. Melt the lard in a large pot over medium heat, and stir the onion in, stirring until translucent. 2. Add in all of the spices except the cocoa (no one likes burnt cocoa) for 30 seconds to 1 minute until they are fragrant. 3. Cook the bacon in a separate pan. If it is cooked in the pot as the chili, the final product will be too greasy. Leave the rendered fat for your next fried egg. 4. Add in the peppers and sausage. Stir occasionally until the sausage has browned and the peppers have softened. 5. Clear a spot in the pan for the tomato paste and the anchovies. Toast them on the bottom of the pan for 30 seconds to 1 minute, and stir them in. 6. Pour in the apple cider vinegar, and scrape the bottom of the pan to get the fond into the chili. 7. When the bacon is done, cut it into 1/2 inch segments, and add it to the pan along with the cocoa. 8. Pour in the canned tomatoes and stir. 9. Turn the heat to low and simmer with the lid on for at least two hours, but the longer you cook it, the more the flavors will meld. 10. If you like your chili thick, you can take the lid off for the last hour of cooking to evaporate some of the liquid. 11. Enjoy!
