Here is a great reader recipe shared by Jason over at PaleoPot.com. Great place for recipes if you are following a Paleo diet and love cooking in your slow cooker. This one comes just in time for all those cookouts we’ll be having on the 4th of July! Thanks Jason.
Crock-Pot Paleo Summer Chili for Burgers and Hot Dogs
Cook Time: 6 hours
Yield: 8 Servings
1 Pound of Grass Fed Beef (Ground or Diced)
1 Pound of Pork, Turkey, or Chicken (By All Means, Vary Your Animals Used!)
1/4 to 1/2 Pound of Bacon
3 Bell Peppers, I used Red, Green, and Orange
Hot Peppers to Taste. I Used 2 Orange Habaneros
2 Large Onions, 1 White and 1 Red
2 Cups of Crushed Tomatoes
Half a Head of Garlic
1 Tablespoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Tablespoon Dried Habanero Pepper (optional)
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
Cube your bacon into small strips and brown until crisped in your skillet, then set aside.
Brown your other 2 meats in the bacon grease skillet and season with your dried peppers and salt.
Dump your meat, bacon, and grease into your slow cooker.
Seed your peppers and cube them into medium chunks or smaller, it doesn’t matter, and add to pot.
Dice your onions and add them as well, see how this works?
Don’t forget your garlic, any way will do, diced or smashed.
Add your crushed tomatoes and stir well.
Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours.
Stick your immersion blender into your slow cooker when done and blend your awesome into a chili paste consistency.
Our finished picture shows you what you’re looking for. If you do not have an immersion blender (you should, mine was $20) you can use a food processor, but that means one more thing to clean up, boo to that.
Let set in the fridge overnight to help let the flavors marry.
