Spunky Chunky No Bean Chili

My family loves chili!  There’s not many meals any easier than throwing chili in the crock pot to simmer throughout the day.  When I walk through the door in the afternoon, I know supper is almost ready.

Making chili is more of a process than an actual recipe.  There’s so many ways to do it.  You have your choices of meat, even chicken if your heart desires!

In this recipe, I use ground beef, but I’ve seen where some people use carne asada.  I’ve seen that in the beef section of our grocery store and it looks really good!  I just may try that next time.

Start out by browning the ground beef, onion, and peppers.  I jsut happened to have a frozen mix of peppers that I used this time.

After the meat is a browned and drained, put it together with every thing else in the slow cooker and relax the rest of the day.  Or in my case, head back to work for a few more hours.  🙂

Spunky Chunky No Bean Chili 

3 lbs. ground beef (if you use 80/20, drain it after cooking)
1 large onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped

In a saute skillet, brown beef, onions, and peppers.  Drain if needed.

While the meat is cooking, add to a large crock pot or slow cooker:

1 32 oz can of petite diced tomatoes, or 2 small cans
1 can of Rotel tomatoes or tomatoes with green chiles
2 cups beef stock
¼ cup ground cumin, or to taste
¼ cup chili powder, or to taste
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
pinch of sweetener, optional (add this to balance the acid in the tomatoes)

After the meat is drained, add to the tomato/spice mixture in a crock pot.
Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on low.  Should make 12 servings at around 8 carbs each.

Serve with sour cream and shredded cheese.

*I also made some almond flour biscuits and fried them up like fritters.
