I have never attempted to make chili before. After what came out of the crock pot this morning though I can guarantee it will not be the last time. This is so delicious, filling, and healthy! Really you can’t go wrong.
My First Paleo Chili
1 1/2 lbs 90% lean ground beef
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 small stalks of celery, chopped
2 small carrots, chopped
8oz package white mushrooms, quartered (about 8 mushrooms)
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 x 14.5 oz. can of your favorite tomatoes, go wild and try one with some flavor
1 tsp. greek seasoning
1 tbsp. dried oregano
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tbsp. chili powder
2 tbsp. dinosour bbq cajun foreplay
A little bit of extra salt, pepper, and garlic powder for cooking the beef
Brown ground beef in a large pan and season lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until almost done, there should still be a little pink left. Mix together all of the ingredients into your crock pot. Stir it up good! Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. I put this in around 10:15pm and shut off the crock pot at 6:45am. If you do this then you can enjoy the chili in the morning for breakfast. With an egg. Because we all know everything is better with an over easy egg on it! Tonight the boy and I have a late night reservation for dinner and we will most likely be toasting the midnight hour back at home! We also haven’t had the opportunity to exchange Christmas gifts so that will be tonight as well. I am not sure if I have told you guys but I am planning on playing sober sally for the month of January. I feel like a tub o’ lard after all the wine in inhaled while visiting my parents. I think it will be good, I hear your body de-bloats a little, I could totally go for some of that : ) I decided this a week or two ago and am actually quite excited, ideally the goal is total paleo and sober sally for January, if I pull that off I think my body will sing sweet sweet lullabies to me. We shall see though! I will be back tomorrow blogging and enjoying my day off, I promise to play catch up with pictures and some more recipes from the rest of my time at home. Being with my family was amazing but I am so happy to be back to no snow and slightly warmer temperatures!
