A little about our beef:
The families of Painted Hills Natural Beef have been ranching in Central Oregon, specifically Wheeler County, in the shadow of the state’s famed Painted Hills, for generations. While times have changed in the last two and a half decades, our methods of ranching the way nature intended have not. Pasture raising our cattle without the use of added hormones and never given antibiotics. It means taking the time, care, and effort to do things right. It means raising a beef product for you that’s as striking as the natural wonders it’s named after.

Thank you for trusting us to feed you, your friends, and your family. We’d love to see the finished product! We hope you loved this chili recipe and can’t wait to see it on social media.

  3. For the second Pinwheel: Spread a layer of Feta cheese, Pesto, spinach and sun dried tomato slices. (*note: drain the tomatoes so it isn't too runny.) Season with the Essentials season inside.
