When it’s winter time, it’s crockpot time. I was searching for new chili recipes and came across one I wanted to try. It’s easy and has all the veggies I like, but I’m sure you can substitute. You can also use ground turkey instead of ground beef. This was so yummy I can’t even tell you! Well, if you can hear me jumping up and down with excitement that’s how good it was!! And it’s clean, paleo & did I mention YUMMY??!!??
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted (substitute olive oil)
- 1.5 lbs grass fed ground beef (or turkey)
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 sweet potatoes, cut into chunks (or 1 medium butternut squash)
- 2 (14.5 oz) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes
- 3 tbsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ground beef, bell pepper, and onion; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain fat.
- Transfer meat mixture to a 4-6 squart crockpot. Stir in sweet potatoes, tomatoes, chili powder, salt & pepper.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
- Stir and serve.
*If you like sour cream with your chili, try Fage nonfat greek yogurt as a substitute.
If you make this, let me know how you like it! Happy crocking! And stay warm!!
