Crockpot Paleo Chili

          I will have to give Tom the credit for this one. He first made this for us last winter, and we have made it many times since then. This recipe is a great one to make if you are having people over, or if you want to meal prep and have it for several meals throughout the week. I hope you like it as much as we do!

  • 1 package of lean ground meat or ground turkey
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 green peppers
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 can of tomato paste (6 oz)
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp sea salt (extra if needed for browning meat)
  • 1 tsp pepper (extra if needed for browning meat)
  • 1 tbsp olive or coconut oil
          * Some of the spices may vary depending on how spicy you like your food. Also, I use organic tomato paste, as well as diced tomatoes. Like the meat, you want to always check and make sure your ingredients are Paleo friendly.

  1. In a medium sized pan, coated with olive or coconut oil, brown the meat at a low to medium heat. Add the salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the meat.
  2. While the meat is cooking, chop your green peppers and onion into fine pieces. Once the meat is finished cooking, add to crockpot along with the peppers and onion.
  3. Add the tomato paste as well as the diced tomatoes. Pour it equally over the meat mixture.
  4. Turn crockpot on high and cook for 5 hours. When there is 30 minutes left, stir the contents of the pot. Depending on your serving size, this could feed anywhere from 4-8 people. It also is great served over a warm sweet potato. Yum!
